Statistics are computed using data.
Statistics summarize the data and help us
to predict future performance.

Serve as a means to analyze data collected
in the Measure phase.
Allow us to numerically describe the data
that characterizes our process’ Xs and Ys.
Use past process and performance data to
Serve as a foundation for advanced
statistical problem-solving methodologies.
Are a concept that creates a universal
language based on numerical facts rather
than intuition.
Data Visualization

Before any statistical tools are applied, visually
display and look at your data.
A histogram allows us to look at how the data
is distributed across our Y scale of measure.

Building a Histogram
The following data came from our bicycle test facility: stopping
distances required to bring a 150 lb weight to a complete stop
with the rear brake applied from a 10 mph cruising speed.

Measures of Central Tendency
In addition to counting occurrences and graphing the results, we
can describe processes in terms of central tendency and
dispersion.

Measures of Central Tendency
Mean (m, Xbar)—The arithmetic average of a set
of values


Median (M)—The number that reflects the middle
of a set of values

Uses the quantitative value of each data point
Is strongly influenced by extreme values
Is the 50th percentile
Is identified as the middle number after all the values are
sorted from high to low
Is not affected by extreme values
Mode—The most frequently occurring
value in a data set

Population vs. Sample
(Certainty vs. Uncertainty)
A sample is just a subset of all possible values.
Population
Sample
Since the sample does not contain all the possible
values, there is some uncertainty about the population.
Hence any statistics, such as mean and standard
deviation, are just estimates of the true population
parameters.

The Normal Curve

In 80 to 90% of
problems worked,
normal bell curve or
can be transformed to
look like a normal
curve.
 This curve is
described by the Xbar
and s “statistic.”
 The area under this
curve is 1 or 100%.
For the normal curve,
mean = median = mode.

Histograms (bar charts) are developed from samples.

Sample statistics (Xbar and s) are calculated from representatives
of the population.

From the histogram and sample statistics, we form a curve that
represents the population from which these samples were drawn.
