Design of Experiments and Robust Design Course Code : Q-03

Duration : 2 Days

Introduction :
Design of Experiments (DOE) has been one of the most powerful tools to evaluate and quantify contribution of various input factors on output or response. The technique was developed by Ronald Fisher for improving agricultural yield. Conventional experimentation is done with only one factor at a time (OFAT). In Statistically Designed Experiments (SDE), the idea is to minimize cost and efforts of the experimentation but still obtain maximum information about a process.
