Randomness isn’t haphazard.
Deterministic Engineering …
… answers with a single number,
assumed to occur with certitude.
It has a hidden order that can be
quantified, and used to advantage.
Statistical Engineering provides
a range of likely answers, plus a
statement on the probability
of a given result.
Statistical Engineering quantifies factors otherwise left to intuition, like uncertainty, incomplete information and complicated interdependencies, and thus leverages the engineer’s understanding of how things work with the statistician’s capacity to figure out why when they don’t.
