  • design of experiments
  • DOE


This book is intended for people who have either been intimidated in their attempts to learn about Design of Experiments (DOE) or who have not appreciated the potential of that family of tools in their process improvement efforts.

This introduction to DOE showcases the power and utility of this statistical tool while teaching the audience how to plan and analyze an experiment. It is also an attempt to dispel the conception that DOE is reserved only for those with advanced mathematics training. It will be demonstrated that DOE is primarily a logic tool that can be easily grasped and applied, requiring only basic math skills.

The book's intent is to introduce the basics and persuade the reader of the power of this tool. The material covered will still be sufficient to support a high proportion of the experiments one may wish to perform.
