Executive summaries of IIE Transactions and IIE Transactions on Healthcare Systems Engineering 

Edited by Ronald Askin and John W. Fowler

This month we highlight two articles that use statistical models to understand product and process variability. The first article describes a method to develop time-to-failure distributions for products based on warranty claims. The second article creates baseline profiles from multiple process variables and then checks for outliers. These articles will appear in the February 2014 issue of IIE Transactions (Volume 46, No. 2).
