Trending, standard deviation, forecasting, linear regression, anomaly detection, and normalization are all techniques that IST Program Engineers use as tools to help them analyze and evaluate test results. But does the program engineer remember what these terms mean? Are they being used correctly? Are the techniques being used when they need to be? Are their benefits being fully used? This paper briefly goes over what each of these terms mean and looks at examples of each. Knowing how to use these tools is integral to a quality IST Program. Some software, such as True North Consulting’s EP-Plus Engage IST Software, incorporates these “value added” techniques. A brief overview of how they are used as tools for the IST Engineer is provided. Also included is a discussion on how these tools can be improved on and leveraged to decipher the program engineer’s IST Program data.
