Don’t be baffled by statistics! In the food business, there is the product development cycle no one ever wants to ride: poorly conceived experiments which produce bad data that leads to wrong conclusions and, finally, to market failure. That is why all product developers -- from chemists to QA specialists -- should understand how insightful and intelligent data is produced.

Featured Topics include:

Descriptive statistics and graphics
Gage Repeatability and Reproducibility Studies
Statistics Process Control (SPC)
Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
Design of Experiments (DOE)

This one-day intensive refresher course is led by one of the food industry's most experienced statistical specialists who knows the delicate art and science of mixing food and numbers. He and his colleague will help refresh your knowledge of fundamental concepts and gain a better understanding of common applications of statistics in food science through our case-based approach.

Not just for beginners -- even experienced professionals will benefit from this statistical refresher!
