Design of experiments (DOE) is a system that optimizes a process through the methodical varying of key parameters and a formalized statistical approach to analyzing, interpreting, and applying the results. DoE is designed to make any process more robust and minimize variability from external sources. A crucial tool during process development, DoE can be applied when screening for critical process parameters and when working towards Six Sigma goals.

This mini-BIOMAN hands-on workshop builds upon the statistical concepts required for DOE, including hypothesis testing, confidence ... Read more
