921496 There are fourteen basic “statistics” in the table. We can add the kth largest and kth smallest values to this list by ticking off the options in the tool. 1. 2 Power of Table Managing software development is a complex task. A manager applied data-driven management in a novel manner to make his task easy. He identified 12 milestones and selected the data he needed to collect for each milestone for effective management. That led him to design a data table with 12 rows and 10 columns. The data columns included dates, size defects, effort, and pertinent feature numbers.

For example, a bar graph on discovered defect types can be very instructive. Most categorical variables are plotted as bar graphs and pie charts, and they make a lot of sense. The graphs must be interpreted. A picture is worth a thousand words; but each one needs a few words of explanation articulating the context and meaning. Commentaries on graphs are rare; it may perhaps be assumed that truth is self-evident in the graphs. However, it makes a huge difference to add a line of comment to a graph.

Most prediction models present mean values. In forecasting business volumes and resource requirements, central tendencies are predicted and used as a rule. The prediction of variance is performed as a special case to estimate certainty and risk. 4 Aligning the Mean Aligning the mean of results with target is a great capability. Process alignment with target is measured by the distance between mean and target. The lesser the distance, the greater is the alignment. Aligned processes synchronize with goals, harmonize work flow, and multiply benefits.
