My Research on Modeling Fetal and Child Growth

SPC-based Monitoring of Fetal Growth (Presentations)

On March, 6, 2014, my research team delivered a seminar (in English) at the Soroka Medical Center, describing our ongoing research project in modeling and monitoring fetal growth. The research team includes, besides myself, Dr. Diamanta Benson-Karhi (from the Open University) and Professor Asher Bashiri (from Soroka and Ben-Gurion University).

Concurrently, our graduate student, Mrs. Maya Malamud, had concluded her thesis and delivered a presentation (in Hebrew) during her final exam session.

Both presentations are now accessible here (in PDF format):

SPC-based Monitoring of Fetal Growth

My Research on Modeling Fetal and Child Growth

Modeling and Monitoring Fetal Growth

In the last several years (indeed since October, 2010), I have been engaged, with a team of researchers, in collecting data and constructing a new approach to modeling and monitoring fetal growth. The modeling approach is based on Response Modeling Methodology (RMM), a new modeling approach that I have developed in the last decade or so. The monitoring approach is based on modern principles of Statistical Process Control (SPC), more specifically, SPC-based monitoring of non-linear profiles.

With me in the research team is Dr. Diamanta Benson-Karhi, the initiator of this research effort (from the Open University of Israel), Prof. Asher Bashiri (of the Soroka Medical Center, affiliated to Ben-Gurion (BG) University), and, until recently, Mrs. Maya Malamud, who has just concluded her MSc studies, conducting research and supervising several undergraduate final-project teams in my department at BG University.

A first published document, describing the methodology developed within this research effort, is to appear in the June issue (2014) of Quality Engineering, a journal affiliated to the ASQ (American Society for Quality).

Determining measurement-error requirements to satisfy statistical-process-control performance requirements (Presentation, English)

On January 6th, 2014, I have delivered a talk that carried the title, as displayed above.

The talk was given in the framework of a workshop organized by the Open University of Israel (see details at the bottom of the opening screen of the presentation). It was based on my article of 2004:

Shore, H. (2004). Determining measurement error requirements to satisfy statistical process control performance requirements. IIE Transactions, 36(9): 881-890.
