Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance
Design of Experiments is a statistically based, structured approach to product or process improvement that will quickly yield significant increases in product quality and subsequent decreases in cost. Products and processes can be designed to function with less variation and with less sensitivity to environmental factors or customer usage. While still maintaining high quality from a customer's viewpoint, products and processes can utilize lower cost materials and methods. Specifications can be opened-up with wider tolerances while still maintaining high quality for customers. In summary, products and processes can be designed and developed in shorter times to reduce costs and become more competitive in the marketplace from a delivery and profit standpoint.
This seminar covers the fundamentals required in planning, conducting, and analyzing orthogonal experiments, which are the major steps in the Design of Experiments (DOE) process. Emphasis is placed on the DOE process, which, if diligently followed will yield an effectively completed experiment.
An introduction to parameter design is included. A short video introduces the experimental approach; the end of the session allows practice with the new methods in a hands-on workshop.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
This seminar is designed for product and process design engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality engineers, testing and development engineers. Although it would be helpful, no statistical education or background is required for this course; only fundamental mathematical skills are necessary.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
