2009 Quality & Productivity Research Conference
Conference Theme: Data, Statistics & Vision Lead to Great Decisions
The mission of the Quality and Productivity Research Conference is to improve the quality of products and services and the productivity of industries by stimulating the research and development of better statistical methods, and to identify new application areas where statistics can have a significant impact. In 1984, AT&T Bell Laboratories organized the first Quality and Productivity Research Conference (QPRC), known as the Mohonk Conference. This first conference, and others that followed, stimulated development of modern methods for product and process design, manufacturing, and other business processes. The conference is sponsored by the Quality and Productivity Section of the American Statistical Association (ASA). It includes a pre-conference full day tutorial, plenary/invited/contributed/tutorial sessions, and special events.
