Speaker: Jorge Romeu, Ph.D.; SUNY, Emeritus Professor
This presentation discusses the application of statistics-based engineering methods in quality, reliability, logistics, industrial and systems engineering, and operations research, to the design, development and improvement of weather-related (hurricane) problems. Hurricanes and typhoons are important subjects for nations in the Caribbean, South Pacific, and the Indian Ocean, where they constitute yearly events that are vastly feared, and highly destructive. We will present practical examples from real life experiences.
