The 6th European DOE User Meeting Recap

posted by Heidi on July 5, 2016

Stat-Ease, Inc. and CQ Consultancy hosted the 6th European DOE User Meeting in Leuven, Belgium on May 18th-20th, 2016. We offered two design of experiments (DOE) workshops on the 18th, and then the two-day DOE User Meeting on the 19th-20th. The venue at the historic Faculty Club was charming--complete with cobblestone streets, flowers in full bloom, and delicious artistically-arranged cuisine. The technical program was also excellent. We learned about the latest techniques in design of experiments (DOE) from well-known speakers in the field, and practitioners from a variety of industries spoke about their DOE successes, as well as some not-so-successful experiments and what they learned from them.


Attendees had the chance to network with others and consult with experts about their DOE questions. A highlight of the meeting was our special event on the 19th that included a concert by the choral group, Currende, a delicious dinner at Improvisio, and then beer sampling under the stars at The Capital. A good time was had by all. Hopefully you can join us for the 7th DOE User Meeting in 2018. Look for details to come!
