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, but are not limited to, identifying root causes to quality or production problems, identifying optimized design and process settings, achieving robust designs, and generating predictive math models that describe physical system behavior.
This introductory on-demand course provides an example scenario to give learners the opportunity to discover situations that may warrant a designed experiment. As the scenario is developed, the audience learns the DOE process steps and the definition of relevant terms. The topics covered include the benefits of conducting a DOE, DOE history, and the goals of different types of DOEs. Finally, examples of several success stories are provided to demonstrate the broad range of situations that have benefited from experimentation.
While the course module is approximately 45 minutes in length, the estimated time to completion, including knowledge checks and the learning assessment is 90 minutes.

Longer courses are divided into several components called modules. They may be purchased through the following options:
Introductory module – If you’d like only an introduction or overview of the topic, this module can be purchased as a stand-alone course.
Core modules – After completing the introductory module, you may purchase the remaining course modules as one package, without the need to repurchase the introductory module.
Full course – If you'd like to take the complete course, this purchase option includes all the course modules in one package.
