Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] Design of experiments (DOE) is a powerful tool for achieving breakthrough improvements in product quality and process efficiency leading to increased market share, decreased costs, and greater profits. Yet many manufacturers resist DOE because it requires planning, discipline, and the use of statistics. Quality professionals can provide assistance in overcoming these barriers. Eight keys to success in applying statistical tools for DOE are identified. Two case studies illustrate these keys to success. Quality managers who encourage use of DOE, and promote these keys, will greatly increase the chances for making breakthrough improvements in product quality and process efficiency.
