The purpose of this course is to introduce the delegate to statistical procedures and practices which can be
used to advance rational decisions in the assessment of quality of products in the roads industry, be they
stockpiled aggregates, bituminous binders in bulk tanks, concrete construction or completed pavement
By the very nature of things conclusions as to the quality of a product are invariably based on a limited
number of samples taken from the entire population. Consequently there are risks associated with the
soundness of decisions.
To come to consistent, fair decisions this course presents tools which can be applied to assure the integrity
and coherence of the data on which decisions are based. Once confidence has been established regarding the
integrity of the data. One has to resort to formal techniques, such as statistics and provability theory –
rather than intuitive, informal assessment – to ensure that fairness in the assessment of the data prevails.
