An Introduction to Design of Experiments

Tuesday 24th April 2018
Hilton Gateshead Hotel, Newcastle

Introduction to Design of Experiments (DoE) 

Design of Experiments (DoE) is a methodology used for designing and optimising robust industrial processes. DoE is recognised as an essential skill by many of the world’s leading process organisations. This 1-day introductory workshop is delivered by the Industrial Statistics Research Unit (ISRU) at Newcastle University and provides delegates with an opportunity to augment their process knowledge through the understanding of a sequential DoE strategy. The workshop is targeted at scientists, working at all scales from research to manufacturing, from both academia and industry including chemical, pharmaceutical, food & beverages and paints & coatings organisations. The workshop will involve a series of facilitated sessions, involving experimental design, analysis and interpretation of data, that explore scoping, screening, optimisation and robustness phases. Delegates will be encouraged to apply the strategy within their own research and improvement environments.
