Course detail

Theoretical Principles of Technology

FAST-0J2Acad. year: 2019/2020

The course contains lessons in the field of probability and lessons of principles of mathematical statistic. The industrial mass production uses selected statistic methods for the manufacturing technology evaluation. Description statistics, frequency tables and histograms. The statistical analysis of one or two variables, normal graph of probability. Initial data analysis, quartile graphs, dispersion variance analysis and covariance, tests of distribution correspondence, quality control. Simple and multiple, linear and non-linear regression. Non-parametric methods, tests of Kolmogorov-Smirnov for one and two selections. Estimation and testing of hypotheses. Considering the technologic character of the course the theoretical assumptions of some representing technological operations are presented - the sorting, the problem of mixing, assumption for securing the production quality according to ISO. The part of lectures is accompanied by exercises, which have partially a character of calculations.
