Learn the scientific method for designing and conducting effective experiments. You’ll identify the variables that have the greatest impact on product-level quality and use graphical techniques to analyze data.
Success is no accident with design of experiments (DOE). A strategically planned and executed experiment gives you a great deal of information about the effect on a response variable due to one or more factors. You'll get the basics of DOE from this course – scientific method, steps for designing and conducting effective experiments, and statistical and graphical tests for significance. You'll also learn to set up, conduct, and analyze two-level factorial designed experiments. After this course, you'll be able to identify what factors impact quality and what you can do to improve.
