In this Design of Experiments online course, you will learn the Design of Experiments or DOE. This design technique, which can be applied in several different methods, takes the results from a few carefully designed experiments and uses those results to create equations that explain how the product, process or system works.
By the end of the course, you will know what the keys to a successful DOE analysis are, and you will be able to conduct a Full Factorial DOE and a Fractional Factorial DOE. If you are a member or leader of an analysis team using a methodology such as Lean Six Sigma, this technique will be a significant aid when your problem resolution requires a major change to your systems.
In addition to covering experimental design approaches and methodologies, you will learn to use popular statistical analysis application Minitab to conduct your DOE and apply your results. The design of experiments technique is incredibly powerful when working with new products, new technologies, or when migrating an existing technology into a new application. It is also very helpful for identifying the critical few parameters that will drive the performance of the product, process, or system. When you are in a discovery mode of analysis, this technique provides a path to important insights.
This course can be taken as part of the GoSkills Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training program, to prepare for certification with IASSC. It is also a good stand-alone course to improve proficiency and expand your skill set in any industry with responsibility for technology deployment or product and process development. This course will be from the standpoint of helping you to make wise decisions about your product and process design and management, not conducting mathematical proofs or solving complex matrix mathematics.
