Description

Design of Experiments is an off-line quality improvement technique that can be employed to dramatically improve industrial products and processes, shorten development time, and provide a structured method for improved decision making. Through its use, it is possible to isolate the cause and effect linkages between product/process variables and the resulting output measures of function, quality, cost, and performance.

This course provides participants with an in-depth understanding of the basic principles of experimental designs for screening and characterizing processes, including planning a DOE, simple comparative experiments, main effects, interactions, and detection of curvature. Experimental design includes one-factor optimization, general full factorials, two level factorials, and fractional factorials.

Actual industrial examples are emphasized along with a unique group learning technique of solving problems incorporating simulated noise allowing the full thinking process to be internalized. By solving these problems within the resource constraints given, participants learn to apply DOE economically, identify factors, set factor levels, define experimental goals, select the appropriate experimental design, and develop analysis skills for interpretation and action planning.

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for engineers, quality professionals, researchers, and managers who need to understand and use DOE for process screening and characterizing.

Learning Objectives

Through training, participants will:

  • Gain knowledge of DOE fundamentals including randomization, replication, and confounding
  • Be able to optimize one continuous factor
  • Carry out a simple comparative experiment
  • Be able to identify key factors through screening designs
  • Know how to assess main effects, interactions and detect curvature
  • Know effective strategies for process improvement and why DOE methods are an improvement on other strategies such as One-Factor-at-a-Time Experimentation
