Design of Experiments

Course ID DOETQG
Format Web-based

Learn how to use designed experiments to achieve breakthrough improvements in process efficiency and quality. Discover Design of Experiments (DOE) methods that guide you in the optimal selection of inputs for experiments, and in the analysis of results for processes that have measurable inputs and outputs. Realize that process changes made as a result of statistically designed experiments typically result in more efficient processes and that’s what DOE is all about.

Course Overview

Learning Objectives:

  • Define Design of Experiments (DOE) and describe its purpose, importance, and benefits.
  • Define key terms associated with DOE and explain how to conduct a well-designed statistical experiment.
  • Describe the five phases used for applying DOE and walk through the steps for each phase as we apply DOE to a sample experiment.

  • Demonstrate how to analyze the results of a full factorial design.
  • Explain the role of replication.
  • Describe the threats to statistical validity of a designed experiment.

Prerequisites:

Some knowledge of inferential statistics including confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, and ANOVA is helpful.

Who Should Attend:

This course is designed for persons in organizations who are tasked with process or quality improvement. This includes Technical/Professionals, Engineers, Technicians, Process Improvement Practioners, and Technical Managers.

System Requirements
Here is what you need to participate in an ASQ web-based, self-paced, or instructor-led virtual WebEx course.

Registration Email

After course registration, you will receive an email with access instructions. If you do not, please check your email junk, spam, or clutter folders. If the email is not there, please contact ASQ. For virtual WebEx courses, you will receive another email 24 hours prior to the start of class containing additional access information.

Technical Requirements

  • Computer – PC or Macintosh
  • High-speed internet connection
  • Adobe Flash Player 10.3 or later
  • Windows: Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome (latest version), Firefox (latest version)
  • Mac: Safari 7 or later, Google Chrome (latest version), Firefox (latest version)
  • For instructor-led virtual WebEx courses, a speakerphone or telephone headset in a designated room or space with no distractions (preferred)

NOTE: Refer to product description for any additional system requirements.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.

Cancellation Policy
ASQ reserves the right to cancel or re-schedule courses and to change instructors. Please be advised that in the event of a course cancellation, ASQ is not responsible for airfare penalties or other travel related expenses you may incur.
  • If you need to cancel, we will refund your paid registration fee as noted below.
    • Requests for cancellations/transfers received at least 5 business days before the start of the course receive a full refund/transfer.
    • Requests received within 5 business days of the course starting incur a $150 processing fee.
    • After the course starts, there are no refunds or transfers.
    • Registrants who fail to attend without advance notice are liable for the entire course fee.
    • If you cannot find a substitute, we can transfer your course fees to another ASQ course of your choice.
  • You must successfully complete the entire course or program before IACET CEUs and a Certificate of Completion can be awarded.
