The focus of this research project has been the development of methods for designing process control systems and developing techniques for analyzing engineering test data, such as regression and time series methods, as well as the application of sampling inspection and control techniques to various problems in defense procurement. During the conduct of the research, numerous site visits have been made to Navy installations at Crane, Indiana, the Naval Ship Research and Development Center, the Operational Test and Evaluation Force at Norfolk, Virginia, and several units of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command. These visits have involved discussions of research projects with scientific, technical, and management personnel, and have served to focus research on statistical methods and quality of assurance procedures that are of current and direct interest to the Navy. The research activities have focused on three principal areas. The first of these is the development of new methods for designing process control procedures. The second research area has involved statistical modeling and analysis, concentrating principally on regression analysis and time series analysis. The third area has involved the use of acceptance sampling schemes specifically designed for auditing service contracts.
