Why Is HPD Holistic?

HPD Addresses and Can Handle:

  • Design for Fit & Function (and enable tradeoffs 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 among an infinitude of distributions – far, far beyond known Types (liberates Applied Probability!)

It Puts in Perspective: Deterministic & StochasticModeling,” 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 Books:

  • (In Process.) Go hand in hand with 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

Prior to completion, relevant material will be shared with users & collaborators


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!


On Rest of HPD Pages:

“Some Clarifying Examples” and “Descriptions A – C”

Re. Some Clarifying Examples:

This is a long, detailed page; practitioners will appreciate using examples to compare using HPD vs. existing techniques & tools. We give more coverage here on comparing Taguchi Methods (TM) to HPD’s Stochastic Optimization since users & proponents aren’t aware of TM’s shortfalls.

Re. Description A – C:

As stated in Home, this site is intended for a wide range of viewers. Because lingo used by each community differs from another’s, as are objectives/focuses of each, we are giving 3 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 the separate Descriptions. . . . Ultimately, one of our aims is to enable all to understand each other.
