The fact is that in order to develop a rational quality control

and quality assurance plan (QC/QA), one must formulate

technical parameters using statistical methods. Typical

uses are for evaluating concrete strength data, soil

compaction data or manufacturing processes.

Another key use of mathematics is in the transportation

business where a client (say a delivery company) seeks to

minimize fuel usage while making all its deliveries on a

given day. This is widely-known as the "Traveling

Salesman" problem.

Financial institutions manage investment and underwriting

risks using statistical methods.

And of course......in the high-tech business and aviation

and rocketry.....

The manned variant of the Titan II launch vehicle was

plagued by a longitudinal vibration known as "pogo"

during its qualification testing in the early 1960s. The

problem was solved using advanced mathematical

techniques which ultimately resulted in liquid

accumulators being installed immediately before the

*Aerojet* engines. Problem solved.
