Quality control charts have proven to be very effective in detecting out-of-control states. When a signal is detected a search begins to identify and eliminate the source(s) of the signal. A critical issue that keeps the mind of the process engineer busy at this point is determining the time when the process first changed. Knowing when the process first(More)
In this expository paper we give an overview of some statistical methods for the monitoring of social networks. We discuss the advantages and limitations of various methods as well as some relevant issues. One of our primary contributions is to give the relationships between network monitoring methods and monitoring methods in engineering statistics and(More)
—Image and video sensors are increasingly being deployed in complex systems due to the rich process information that these sensors can capture. As a result, image data play an important role in process monitoring and control in different application domains such as manufacturing processes, food industries, medical decision-making, and structural health(More)
In recent years risk-adjusted control charts have been increasingly studied for monitoring surgical outcomes by accounting for patients' health conditions prior to surgery. However, most existing research focuses on phase II monitoring, and very little work has been done on phase I control of surgical outcomes. In this paper, a general phase I risk-adjusted(More)
A ubiquitous presence of sequence data across fields, like, web, healthcare, bioinformatics, text mining, etc., has made sequence mining a vital research area. However, sequence mining is particularly challenging because of absence of an accurate and fast approach to find (dis)similarity between sequences. As a measure of (dis)similarity, mainstream data(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluates the repeatability of brain perfusion using dynamic susceptibility contrast magnetic resonance imaging (DSC-MRI) with a variety of post-processing methods. METHODS Thirty-two patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma were recruited. On a 3-T MRI using a dual-echo, gradient-echo spin-echo DSC-MRI protocol, the patients were(More)
The ease of entering a car is one of the important ergonomic factors that car manufacturers consider during the process of car design. This has motivated many researchers to investigate factors that affect discomfort during ingress. The patterns of motion during ingress may be related to discomfort, but the analysis of motion is challenging. In this paper,(More)
