Industrial Statistics
Bachelor in Industrial Technologies Engineering (Plan: 418 - Estudio: 256)


Department assigned to the subject: Statistics Department

Type: Electives
ECTS Credits: 6.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
Calculus I and II Algebra Statistics
The course has two parts: Forecasting and reliability. In the first part you learn to forecast variables. For example you can forecast the evolution of a company's sales, or monthly unemployment in Spain. We will use univariate ARIMA models. In the second part you will learn to estimate the duration of processes and / or components. This is the basis of reliability analysis. We use parametric and nonparametric estimators for complete or censored data.
