Design of Experiments (DOE) is a methodology that can be effective for general problem-solving, as well as for improving or optimizing product design and manufacturing processes. Specific applications of DOE include identifying proper design dimensions and tolerances, achieving robust designs, generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior, and determining ideal manufacturing settings. This seminar utilizes hands-on activities to help you learn the criteria for running a DOE, the requirements and pre-work necessary prior to DOE execution, and how to select the appropriate designed experiment type to run. You will experience setting up, running, and analyzing the results of simple-to-intermediate complexity, Full Factorial, Partial Factorial, and Response Surface experiments utilizing manual methods as well as a hands-on computer tool that facilitates experimental design and data analysis. You will also receive an overview of Robust DOE, including the Taguchi DOE Method.
Participants will be given information on how to receive, install and configure a fully-functional 30-day trial version of Minitab for their use in class, and/or for their personal evaluation. While some computers will be available, attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer and/or a calculator to the seminar to provide additional hands-on time.
Note: A similar course is available live online.
