There are 5 modules in this course

In this module, you will learn why exploratory data analysis (EDA) is a critical component of data analysis in various domains, including statistics, data science, and machine learning. It involves examining and visualizing the characteristics of a dataset to gain insights, discover patterns, and identify relationships between variables. It also helps understand the data, identify quality issues, and formulate hypotheses for further analysis. Additionally, you will learn the fundamentals of correlation and linear regression and how to analyze and extract meaningful insights from datasets. This helps to strengthen the foundation for subsequent data analysis and modeling tasks, enabling informed decision-making and hypothesis generation.

In this module, you will learn about hypothesis testing, which is an important component of statistical analysis and data-driven decision-making. You will also learn how to apply hypothesis-testing techniques to infer population parameters based on sample data. Additionally, you will formulate hypotheses, select appropriate tests, conduct hypothesis tests, interpret results, and effectively communicate the findings. Hypothesis testing provides a systematic framework for making data-driven decisions and drawing valid conclusions based on statistical evidence.

In this module, you will learn about the design of experiments (DOE), which plays a crucial role in the improve phase of the Six Sigma methodology. It provides a structured approach for data-driven decision-making and process optimization and enables you to examine the parameter space efficiently to comprehend the relationships between factors and responses. You will also gain insight into designing and conducting efficient experiments, analyzing experimental data, and optimizing process variables. By applying DOE techniques, you can systematically assess the process space, identify influential factors, and optimize process performance while minimizing time, cost, and resources. The module also provides an overview of control charts, their uses, and applications in the Six Sigma methodology. Additionally, you will gain an understanding of various types of control chart patterns used to detect special causes of variation.
