Statistical power may be understood as being an indicator of the ability of a test of significance to spot a practical difference, such as the one between the averages of two products that are being compared. In this context, a low power typically means that the sample sizes in the study are too small.

The most informative method for analyzing the data that results from QC, Validation, or Engineering activities is the calculation of the product's or lot's “reliability” at a chosen “confidence” level (where “reliability” means “in-specification”).

At first glance, one may not think much about the link between human resources and project management. After all, human resources is about various administrative functions, while project management is essentially about organizing.
This assessment, however, takes a very shallow look at the interconnection between the two disciplines. A scratch on the surface will lead to a different understanding, which is that there is a lot of commonality between the…Continue
