- Description of statistics using Excel
- Probability distributions, central limit theorem, law of large numbers
- Hypothesis testing
- Sample size determination

Use Excel to calculate means, standard deviations, create histograms of distributions, introduce normal distribution, test hypotheses, correlation and regression.
This is a stand-a-lone beginning quantitative subject specifically for students studying logistics and supply chain management. Students are encouraged to bring along data from their work place to use in statistical analysis along with a lap top computer with Microsoft Excel or their statistical calculators.
