Introduction to Design of Experiments (DOE) - Jun 6-7, 2019 - Westford, MA

Sponsored by Quality Support Group

Course Overview

This dynamic seminar provides the statistical foundation and then a comprehensive introduction to the use of powerful DOE techniques for improving and optimizing any product design or process.  In just two days you will receive a solid introduction to proven approaches for identifying variables that significantly affect product  and process performance and consistency.  This lively and interactive workshop complements efforts to improve existing processes and also applies to new product and process development projects.

During the program you will learn basic principles of design of experiment methods and their important connection to statistical process control techniques and other intermediate statistical tools.  You will learn how to set up and run basic factorial and screening experiments;, analyze experimental outcomes; identify significant effects on process performance and consistency; and select the right factors for future study or implementation.  In various workshops you will plan, design, conduct and analyze experiments applied to new product development, existing production processes and field failures.

At the end of this seminar you will know why DOE is recognized as a strategic initiative to help organizations remain competitive and profitable in this new economic age.  You will also appreciate why a working knowledge of DOE is turning out to be a critical skill set for all technical professionals and managers.

Seminar Topics

  • Concepts Review: Systems Thinking, Theory of Variation and Basic SPC Principles
  • DOE: Some background and history
  • How DOE differs from "scientific method" and other traditional approaches to experimentation
  • Advantages of design of experiments
  • Disadvantages of DOE
  • Full factorial designs
  • Fractional factorial and Plackett-Burman screening experiments
  • Basic Procedure for Improving a System (and where DOE fits in)
  • Basic Procedure for Managing DOE
  • "Final Exam:" Participants will design and plan an experiment to be run in their organizations.

This course was designed for…

Engineers, scientists and technical managers and support staff in quality, R&D and production or process engineering.  Others involved in design of new products or upgrading existing processes will also benefit from attending thiis seminar.
