Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching consists of lectures that have an explanation of basic principles and methodology of the discipline, pratical problems and their sample solutions.

Exercise promote the practical knowledge of the subject presented in the lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

The course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions (max. 40 points):
- submitting answers to calculating problems and theoretical questions.

The exam (max. 60 points)
- has a written form.
In the first part of the exam student solves 4 examples within 80 minutes. In the second part of the exam student works out answers to 3 theoretical questions within 15 minutes.

The mark, which corresponds to the total sum of points achieved (max. 100 points), consists of:
- points achieved in control tests, points achieved to calculating questions and theoretical questions,
- points achieved by solving examples,
- points achieved by answering theoretical questions.

The grades and corresponding points:
A (100-90), B (89-80), C (79-70), D (69-60), E (59-50), F (49-0).

Course curriculum

Topics of lectures are the following:
- Discrete Random Variables
- Continuous Random Variables
- Data samples
- Statistical Process Control
- Process Capability Index
- Acceptance Sampling
- Inventory Management
- Matrix Games

The topics of exercises correspond to the topics of lectures.


The objective of the course is to learn students to work with the random variables, to work with statistical data sets, to use methods of statistical process control, process capability indexes, acceptance sampling, inventory management and analyze conflicting decision situations.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Attendance at lectures is not compulsory but is recommended. Attendance at exercises is required and checked by the tutor. An excused absence of a student from seminars can be compensated for by submitting solution of alternate exercises.
