Introduction to Advanced Design of Experiments
This intensive, two-day workshop adds a new dimension of experimental design beyond what was taught in Jim Leonard's two-day introductory DOE Workshop. Developed in response to requests from past students, this seminar introduces more advanced concepts and techniques including ANOVA (Analysis of Variance), three-level designs and Taguchi designs for handling mixed-level experiments.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to report the instructor and fellow students the outcomes of previous experiments. At the end of this two-day seminar, teams of participants will plan and design their next experiment on their own designs, products and/or processes.
Prerequisite: Attendees should have successfully completed Jim Leonard's two-day Introduction to Design of Experiments (DOE) Seminar or equivalent and applied some of that workshop's designs in their own experiments. Attendees are asked to bring to this workshop non-confidential data and results of their recent experiments.

Who Should Attend?
Engineers, scientists and technical managers and support staff in R & D, quality, production, test and process control who are interested in taking their experimental design techniques beyond the introductory approaches. This workshop is most beneficial when a team from your organization attends together.
";Jim has run a number of highly effective training sessions and consultancy exercises for us, based on the continuous improvement principles of Dr. W. Edwards Deming. He is a highly motivating and energetic trainer who has the skill to assist people to translate the theories into concrete action that delivers real results. Very highly recommended." — Geoff Tompsett, HR and IT Manager, Biocompatibles plc.
