3.5-Hr Virtual Training: Introduction to Design of Experiments - Webinar (Recorded)

  • Webinar

  • 210 Minutes
  • May 2018
  • Compliance Online
  • ID: 4899616
Why Should You Attend:

Participants will gain a solid understanding of important concepts and methods in statistical experiments. Successful experiments allow the development of predictive models for the optimization of product designs or manufacturing processes. Several practical examples and case studies will be presented to illustrate the application of technical concepts. This webinar will prepare attendees to begin designing and conducting experiments. Attendees will also learn how to analyze the data from experiments to understand significant effects and develop predictive models utilized to optimize process behavior.

Design of Experiments has numerous applications, including:

Fast and Efficient Problem Solving (root cause determination)
Shortening R&D Efforts
Optimizing Product Designs
Optimizing Manufacturing Processes
Developing Product or Process Specifications
Improving Quality and/or ReliabilityAreas Covered in the Webinar:
