With the quad-core "Tukwila" Itanium processors coming out sometime around the middle of this year, the Itanium Solutions Alliance, the consortium of hardware and software vendors that peddle Itanium-based products, has dusted off the Itanium drum and begun banging on it. If there is one thing that you can probably say about processor architectures here in early 2009, it is that Itanium and Sparc have been for years tied for the position as the next chip to go, but this has changed. Sun Microsystems' declining fortunes and impending acquisition by Oracle probably makes the future of Itanium, relative to Sparc at ...
Briefly, "common-cause" is the usual, historical, quantifiable variation in a system, while "special-causes" are unusual, not previously observed, non-quantifiable variation. The distinction is fundamental in philosophy of statistics and philosophy of probability , with different treatment of these issues being a classic issue of probability interpretations , being recognised and discussed as early as 1703 by Gottfried Leibniz ; various alternative names have been used over the years.

Pet peeve of mine: when companies use buzzwords or phrases that other companies used in the past just because it sounds cool or marketable. I’ve been guilty of this myself, but only because I do parodies a lot, so I make fun of certain names.

Statistical Process Control (SPC) is a methodology used for the ongoing monitoring, control, and improvement of processes through the use of statistical tools ( 1 ). SPC contains a number of graphical methods that helps achieve several objectives: quantifying one or more measures of a process; determining whether the process is operating within an acceptable range of variability; identifying ways that the process can be improved to achieve its best target value; and eliminating unacceptable variability.

This captures the central idea that some variation is predictable, at least approximately in frequency. This common-cause variation is evident from the experience base. However, new, unanticipated, emergent or previously neglected phenomena ( e.g. "new diseases") result in variation outside the historical experience base. ...
