Technologies and Domains
Our technologies all relate to using data or even Big Data to help make decisions. Usually, Big data is not big enough
because there is little information about new options that have not been tried. We make ways to help fill in the blanks.
Like many in ASQ, INFORMS, IIE, and AmStat, I feel passionately about the role of data and methodical approaches in improving
It has been said that Boeing planes could not achieve their quality levels without
improved methods for decision-making. It seems likely that similar improvements in other systems will unavoidably require
new methods for decision-making.
Also, the way that education occurs is important in relation
to keeping the outcomes in mind.
