DATA QUALITY AND PEDIGREE Introduction Data are scientific or technical measurements represented by numbers or other means [1]. Their importance in scientific and engineering work can never be stressed enough. The heart and soul of statistical analysis are the data. It is well known that bad data induces the so-called GIGO model: Garbage In, Garbage Out. In(More)
During the Spring of 1995 a statistical experiment to assess the effects of two methods of teaching introduction to Computer programming concepts, was developed. The experiment implemented two teaching approaches: traditional lecture vs. laboratory (technology). Several performance measures were defined and then collected throughout the course, to assess(More)
When Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, Cubans on both sides of the political differend committed a costly strategic error. We allowed our internal struggle to become a football in the Cold War game. Castro sided with the Soviet Union, at a time when a nuclear war could destroy everything. The Cuban opposition sided with the United States, who sought to(More)
Discrete event simulation has benefited from statistical analysis but the reverse is not true. Recent advances in computer technology and software development have made it possible to have PC's running specialized simulation languages readily available. The paper discusses how discrete event simulation, developed via specialized simulation languages (e.g.,(More)
De Dulcinea, en ansias de la muerte, !di que siempre será la más fermosa! Del soneto “La más fermosa” Enrique Hernández Miyares This paper follows-up on earlier work (Romeu, 2007); we refer the reader to this material for background on Six Sigma and for an in-depth discussion of the need for a peaceful transition to pluralism in Cuba. Here, we develop a(More)
Roqué’s paper is a clear, clean and useful example of the use of Markov Chains in forecasting. It can be easily implemented with Cuban data, in the same manner Roqué has done in the Little Havana example. This work could even be broken down by provinces, or by geographical regions, and used in agriculture, construction and other outdoor activities that are(More)
The topic of the 2012 ASCE Conference is “Where is Cuba Going?” This begs the answer in the subtitle of this paper. There is a simple reason: political intolerance has plagued Cuban history from the start. And democracy can only flourish under tolerance. Tolerance means that one is willing and/or able to listen and understand the views of others, especially(More)
