Within a manufacturing business, sampling is an activity used across many operations and in various applications: product and process R&D, raw material/process/product quality control, continuous improvement, competitor comparisons and failure investigations, to name but a few.
During the webinar, the presenters explored the importance of sampling in these applications, including how knowledge of appropriate sampling strategies and best practice can drive-up operational efficiency and improve financial outcomes.
The webinar discussed:
- The relationship between taking a sample and taking a risk - the risk that an unrepresentative sample may lead to poor decisions and inappropriate actions
- The techniques used in data analysis which are based on certain assumptions about how the sample was taken and the nature of the population that the sample represents
- How some knowledge of the assumptions underlying the statistics can help put risks into perspective
- The approach to sampling for product difference assessment
- The implications for sampling procedures of different data types
- Physical sampling issues.
