Quality by Design (QbD) and Design Space using MODDE®

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a rational and cost-effective approach to practical experimentation that allows the effect of variables to be assessed using only the minimum of resources. DOE is the backbone for efficient QBD implementation strategies. The final specifications for a region where all specifications are fulfilled to a defined risk level is called Design Space. The course is composed of lectures, demonstrations and computer exercises in software MODDE® based on real life investigations. We always strive to deliver great training with focus on the participants and the learning capacity. To ensure a good training quality, the trainings are split over five sessions. One home exercise per session is included and it is expected that the course delegates work on each exercise outside the session time.

Who Should Attend

Intended for researchers, scientists and engineers from all sectors of industry and academia. Typical applications include product development, process improvement, optimization, validation and quality control. No prior knowledge of statistics is assumed.
