4 Easy Steps to Effective Factorial Design

Learn the four steps used to plan effective design of experiments (DOE's). Proper planning is key to a successful DOE. This course is intended for anyone who would like to do DOE, but doesn't know where to start. For example, an engineer who wants to improve the quality of a product or reduce costs, or a chemist who wants to increase the yield of a chemical process. Any product or process that has controllable inputs (factors) and measurable outputs (responses) can be improved by using DOE. This course will teach you how to build a good factorial DOE. Follow up with the next course, "Finding the Vital Settings via Factorial Analysis" to learn how to use factorial analysis methods to make breakthrough discoveries!

Learn to set up a DOE:

  • What information must be gathered to build a good DOE?
  • What are the 4 steps needed to build a good DOE?
  • How many runs do you really need for the DOE?
  • What is power and how does it help ensure you have enough runs?
  • What is the most commonly used type of DOE and how does it help ensure your success?
