Design of Experiments (DOE) | Web Course

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. The course is composed of lectures, demonstrations, and computer exercises in software MODDE® based on actual investigations. We always strive to deliver outstanding training focusing on the participants and their learning capacity. The training is split into four sessions. One home exercise per session is included, and it is expected that the course delegates work on them outside the session time

Course dates:

  • September 19th -22nd , 09:00 - 12:30 CEST
  • October 10th -13th, 10:00 - 02:00 EST
  • October 17th -21st , 09:00 - 12:30 CEST

Please add the course date to the My Request in the form so we can register you for the right course.

Item no.:  UT-MC-2080

 

Course Objective

On completion, participants will know how to:

  • Create efficient experimental designs to match the investigation objective.
  • Analyze experimental data using sound statistical principles
  • Use graphical and statistical tools for understanding
  • Communicate the results in graphical format
  • Use numerical and graphical optimization tools
  • Understand limitations and possibilities in conflict situations
  • Create follow up experiments when applicable

Who Should Participate?

The course is 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.

Selected Course Content

  • Understanding the DOE concept
  • Data modeling and diagnostics
  • Create a solid base for decisions
  • Finding the optimal setting

Language Information

Course Material and Software

The electronic course material (course slides and exercises) and the MODDE® course license will be emailed two weeks before the course starts. MODDE® needs admin rights to be installed, so please get in touch with IT soonest. Sartorius cannot help you to install MODDE®. We recommend you have two screens or one projector and one PC to follow the course and demos easily. However, this is not required.

Preparation

We recommend listening to “Design of experiments (DOE) for the beginner” before the course start (watch recording).

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send an email to: umetrics_academy@sartorius.com

Cost and Conditions

The course fee is 1500€ per person.

Cancellations received later than two weeks before the course will not be refunded. For courses cancelled more than two weeks before the course starts, Sartorius Stedim Data Analytics AB will retain 10% of the course fee to cover administrative costs, and the rest of the amount will be refunded.

The registering company can substitute course participant(s) as long as Sartorius Stedim Data Analytics AB is notified.

Sartorius Stedim Data Analytics AB provides courses based on a sufficient number of registrants. Therefore, Sartorius Stedim Data Analytics AB reserves the right to cancel the course 14 days before the course start date if the number of registrants is too low. A full refund will be made to these registrants. A 10% discount will be made to any registrant(s) enrolling in the next available course.
