Abstract

The paper is based on a talk given on 23 March 1972 to the South Wales Group of the Royal Statistical Society. Starting from the new developments in statistical method which occured at the close of the last century, it describes some of the main features of the introduction of statistical techniques into industry in the United Kingdom, largely on the basis of incidents and persons with whom the writer was brought into contact during his statistical career.
