This course will teach you how to use experiments to gain maximum knowledge at minimum cost. For processes of any kind that have measurable inputs and outputs, Design of Experiments (DOE) methods guide you in the optimum selection of inputs for experiments, and in the analysis of results. Full factorial as well as fractional factorial designs are covered.
