Design of Experiments for Process/Product Optimization


This course is designed to help scientists and engineers plan and conduct experiments and analyze the data to develop predictive models used to optimize processes and products and solve complex problems. Design of Experiments (DOE) is an extremely efficient method to understand which variables (and interactions) affect key outcomes and allows the development of mathematical models used to optimize process and product performance. The models also provide an understanding of the impact of variability in controllable and uncontrollable factors on important responses. The concepts behind DOE are covered along with some effective types of screening experiments. Case studies will also be presented to illustrate the use of the methods.
