Designed of Experiments I - Screening Experiments (1 day)
This course serves as a broad introduction to designed experiments including fractional factorial (screening experiments) and response surface studies. It further teaches you to perform one type of designed experiment called a screening experiment. A screening experiment is a systematic approach to identifying the key input parameters of a process or product that affect the output performance. You will become proficient at designing, analyzing and interpreting screening experiments by working three real-life problems. Using the SCREEN software package provided in the class, you will determine the correct experimental design plan and analysis approach for the problems presented. You will then generate and analyze the data and interpret the results. Use of the software allows the course to concentrate on the strategies and interpretation of designed experiments rather than the mathematics.
Finally, through a series of case studies, you will develop an appreciation for other types of designed experiments including response surface studies and Taguchi methods. This will prepare you for participating on a team running one of these other types of experiments.
This course is designed for those managers, engineers and scientist responsible for developing or improving products and processes. No previous exposure to designed experiments is required. The student should be familiar with such statistical concepts as the normal distribution and standard deviations.
What You Will Learn
Course uses either Minitab or Statgraphics software packages.
Participants receive course manual.
