A revolution in industry is occurring as data analytics are increasingly used to gain competitive advantage, or to just stay competitive. Data-driven decision making has transformed sports, entertainment, finance, manufacturing, supply chain management and other industries with companies pursuing analytics as a competitive advantage. Spending on analytics in large companies has grown 8.5% annually since 2009 and 87% of organizations are calling for stepping up use of analytics. The talk will explore a systematic approach to turn data into impact and what it means to treat data as a strategic asset.

Speaker Bio(s):  Dr. Ashley N. Johnson-Long is Supervisor, Applied Advanced Analytics in the Manufacturing Technology and Engineering (MTE) division at Corning Incorporated. She is also leading the MTE Data Analytics Initiative for Corning.

Dinner Meeting – Thursday, January 19, 2017

Overview of Design and Analysis of Engineering Experiments for Practitioners

Dean V. Neubauer- Engineering Fellow – Corning Incorporated

Abstract:  Probably one of the most useful methods in statistics is that of the design and analysis of experiments.  Experiments are useful in identifying factors which have an effect on one or more responses we are interested in.  They may take the form of a screening experiment where we have many factors but we don’t know which are actually statistically important, or they may be used for studying just a few factors where we are looking for significant effects, or perhaps to optimize a process where we want to determine how to set the levels of the factors to achieve the best possible outcome for one or more responses.

On April 4, ASQ Section 0202 will be hosting a 1-day Educational Day at Tags.  We will study how to design and analyze several types of experiments that apply to problems you may face at work.  In particular, we will be concerned with those types of experimental designs in common use in industry today.  So, for this January ASQ Dinner Meeting, Dean will provide an overview of this short course so you can decide for yourself is this is a course that you would find worthwhile and that your company could benefit from.  There will be no mathematics discussed in this overview.  Rather, the topics to be covered will be discussed in the order they will be presented so as to give the audience a perspective of how the course will flow.

Speaker Bio(s):  Dean is an Engineering Fellow in the Manufacturing, Technology and Engineering (MTE) Division at Corning Incorporated.  He has worked for Corning since 1981 and has been involved in projects in every major business. He has fifteen U.S. patents for compositional work on a variety of materials and devices for the manufacture of display glass.  He holds degrees in statistics from Iowa State University and Rochester Institute of Technology.  Dean has taught as an Adjunct Professor in the M.S. program for the Center for Quality and Applied Statistics at R.I.T. since 1992.  He participates on the ASTM E-11 Committee on Quality and Statistics where he is a Past Chairman and is a member of the ASTM International Committee on Standards (COS).   Dean was elected a Fellow of the American Society for Quality (ASQ) in 2000 and is a Certified Quality Engineer. He is a Past Chair of the ASQ’s Chemical and Process Industries Division and a Past Chair of the Corning-Elmira ASQ Section.  He is a recipient of the 2003 Shewell Award from ASQ and the 2011 Harold F. Dodge Award from ASTM.

The Section Leadership Committee members are planning to meet at Toys-R-Us (next to Arnot Mall) next Wednesday, December 7th at 6:00pm to go shopping for the kids.

If there is anything that we cannot get at Toys-R-Us, the Arnot Mall is just across the street.

Please email if you plan to join in the shopping next week, so we can plan to include you!
