Abstract: Statistics/Analytics plays a very important role in Industry. This presentation will illustrate why Fortune 500 companies, like The Procter & Gamble Company -- maker of brands like Tide detergent, Gillette products, and Crest -- rely so heavily on these skills in order to be successful in the highly competitive business world. These skills are critical to solving complex problems in such areas as product development, product claims, product quality, and consumer research. In addition, part of the talk will introduce computer simulation experiments and highlight the business value they have in the highly competitive and complex environment of product development. The mantra is to "explore and develop virtually and confirm physically." The talk will also discuss the various types of industry that look for and eventually employ individuals with skills in the area of statistics, analytics and quantitative analysis.
