Why Is HPD Holistic?

HPD Addresses and Can Handle:

  • Design for Fit & Function (and enable trade-offs with Corporate Specs or with other subsystems )
  • Parts to System, and beyond to Customer Satisfaction & Corporate P&L
  • Analysis & Synthesis (in mathematical terminology, Forward & Inverse treatments of problems)
  • Any Type of "Model" & "Modeling" (see HPD Intro page)
  • Any Type - among an infinitude- of Distributions (liberates Applied Probability!)

It Puts in Perspective: Deterministic & Stochastic "Modeling", Analysis, & Optimization/Synthesis

And Enables: Transcendence from the Deterministic to the Stochastic Realm

   (For practitioners, Transcendence means one can think & work with Probabilistics as one could with Deterministics)

The HPD Book:

  • (Currently at 85% completion) Complements the Software.
  • Its Methodology part includes the breakthrough work processes and concepts for Stochastics
  • The Software part includes the novel mathematical & computational techniques we developed for it (for academia's sake)

    Prior to completion, relevant material will be shared with potential users, academia, and management (via Talks/Training Sessions)

HPD greatly Simplifies Probabilistics

Users need hardly any knowledge of Probability at all, yet would understand it with natural ease,
thus be able to work easily with it, as if such skills are at their fingertips!

Brief Comments on Rest of HPD Pages:
"Some Specifics on Design Engineering" and Descriptions A - D

Re. "Some Specifics on Design Engineering":

Because of HPD's importance to Design Engineering (DE), this "Page" clarifies what it’s currently like in actual practice for addressing Variability. Then, since other pages cover (the Umbrella Area of) Variability Analysis a great deal, it focuses on Design Optimization by specifically discussing how HPD_Opt far supersedes Taguchi Methods.

Re. "Re. Descriptions A - D:"

As stated on the Home page, this site is intended for a wide range of viewers. Because lingo used by each community differs from another's, as are interests/focuses of each, we are giving 4 customized Descriptions to take that into account (one could, of course, customize for many others); viewing the most suitable one would save the viewer's time. 

Note: In our main pages, we have mostly used Design Engineering community's lingo(except where it's intended for mathematicians).  But even among that community, there is a difference in how to speak to each sub-community, as in Descriptions A, B, & D. . . . Ultimately, one of our aims is to enable all to understand each other.
