AB - This paper is a critique of the current direction of industrial
statistics in the U.S. The sweep includes not just the toolkit of
statistical methods most often employed in industry, but also
international competitiveness, the corporate climate in which
statistical solutions are sought and the educational process which
trains applied statisticians. Much is found that is good, but bland
endorsement does little to advance a field. Therefore most of the
paper is deliberately iconoclastic. Almost all of the extreme
viewpoints are rooted in the author's direct experience, working with
statisticians and managers across a range of industries. Some of the
perspective must be attributed to knowledgable gossip, from friends
and students who are now employed by various companies. Incidentally,
the paper reviews four new statistical textbooks for engineers and an
edited volume of papers on experimental design for industry.
