DESIGN 0F EXPERIMENTS (DOE/DOX).

This online course is held over 2 sessions and is fully interactive with detailed examples and plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Why learn about DOE?

Properly designed experiments will improve

  • Understanding of the Cause and Effect relationship in any process
  • Predictive knowledge of the process, in order to improve it
  • Control process costs, while meeting or exceeding customer requirements.

The course will cover:

  • Background to DOE in understanding the cause and effect relationship
  • Understanding data types, and the wide range of experimental tools.
  • Planning an experiment (including gear measurement considerations)
  • Determine if any factor or combination of factors is significant
  • Screening trials and observations
  • Replication and Repetition
  • Statistical control and stability
  • Analysis of Results via ANOVA and define prediction equations
  • Process optimisation to reduce costs
  • Case studies
  • Software options

Module 1. Introduction to DoE Theory: 29th April.

By the end of this module, the participant will:

  • Understand the strategy behind Design of Experiments (DoE/DoX)
  • Understand the types of experiments
  • Understand the goals of an experimental strategy
  • Understand the concept of “between group” variation to “within group” variation.
  • Understanding the within group randomness assumptions and the experimental methods to test these assumptions
  • Understand Coding
  • Understand the limitations of One-Factor-At-a-Time (OFAT) experiments

Module 2. Methods of Data Analysis: 6th May.

By the end of this module, the participant will:

  • Understand the importance of control charts as analytical tools in DoE, and how to interpret them.
  • ANOM, ANOR, and ANOME
  • Understanding multi-level factors.
  • Understand the concept of interaction.
  • ANOVA for graphical and numerical analysis.
  • Testing Results via “SPC for Excel®” and “Minitab®”
  • General measurement issues.
  • Evaluating the Measurement Process (EMP) studies
