Design of Experiments (DOE)

Effective experimental design and analysis are critical in improving products and process, reducing waste, lowering costs, and improving productivity. This how-to seminar focuses on understanding the fundamental elements of experimental design and on the application of strategies. Numerous exercises are included and a statistical software package, Minitab®, is used for interpreting the results more efficiently and effectively. This seminar is highly interactive – it involves the design and analysis of physical studies, simulations and analyses of actual studies. 2.8 CEUs

 Topics include:

  • Strategy of experimentation
  • Summarizing results: main effects and interactions
  • Two-level designs for 3-5 factors: the 2k designs
  • Introduction to variation when conditions are held constant
  • Randomizing and blocking
  • Handling variation in two-level designs
  • Nonreplicated experiments
  • Selecting the correct number of runs
  • The role of center points and their dangers
  • Fractional factorial (2k-p) designs: studying 5-15 factors or more simultaneously
  • Fold-over designs
  • Introduction to response-surface designs
  • Case studies, simulations, physical experiments, numerous exercises

 How you will benefit:

  • Learn how to select the most effective design to answer questions about products or processes

Find out how to maximize results while minimizing time and effort
