Description

The vast majority of Indian engineers and scientists do not understand the difference between estimation and random number generation!

In this four series tutorial, I’ll teach you a few tools to make correct estimates.

If someone asked you, “How many car mechanics work in Moscow,” what would you say?

When I ask this question in my workshops, I get instantaneous answers ranging from 10,000 to 1,000,000 in less than 5 seconds, indicating that the participants don’t think such problems could be thoughtfully solved and the best one can do is wildly guess.

Whether they are third-year B.E. students, senior scientists in defence, or experienced engineers from multinational companies, their response is the same.

So, how do you guess intelligently?
