Design of Experiments (DoE) is an exciting and pragmatic method which has been successfully used by organisations in a wide range of sectors to help them:

  • develop a better understanding of the behaviour and performance of their own products, services, processes and systems (from marketing to manufacturing)
  • identify optimum solutions to their problems.

Whether you are interested in manufacturing process, product or systems design, or optimising your marketing strategy, this course will teach you how to efficiently and confidently determine contributing elements and optimum system settings to make your system behave the way it is intended to operate.

Benefits of attending:

This one-day course will introduce delegates to the key concepts of DoE through practical applications and case studies. Applied learning will be coupled with explanation of the theory behind the method and emphasis will be placed upon practical hints and tips for applying the method in own contexts.

There will be an opportunity for delegates to create an experimental design to examine a present day business challenge. Feedback and guidance will be provided to ensure that delegates feel equipped with enough knowledge to take their experimental designs forward outside the classroom.

No previous background knowledge of DoE is required.

Syllabus:

1. Traditional experimentation vs. Design of Experiments (DoE)
