Design of experiment

Design of Experiment - DOE

This course teach you how to use Design of Experiment - DOE to perform effective and efficient experiments, thereby reducing development costs and time.

Proper design and analysis helps you determine optimal solutions for your product, process or service.  

The course is 2 days. It is arranged on request from companies with 6 - 12 participants and according to the course calendar.

The course is a mixture of theory and practice. The participants design experiments themselves, collect data, analyze, conclude and adjust to find optimal solutions. We will use a Galton board and catapults during the exercises. 

To design and analyze the experiments during training, we use Minitab unless otherwise agreed (Minitab and JMP are alternative solutions). You can download a 30 days free trial version before this course.

 


You learn to:

  • Reduce development time and cost for products, processes and services by using efficient and effective experiemental designs
  • Describe the advantages and disadvantages of different designs and make well-considered choices
  • Analyze and interpret results from experimental design using Minitab
  • Decide which combination of factor values ​​provide the optimal result
  • Understand how factors can interact and affect the process or product

 

Exercises:

Galton board

Galton board is used during the training for basic understanding of statistics, and practical exercises.

Course content:

  • Introduction to DOE
  • Implementation step by step:
    1. Determine objective
    2. Select factors
    3. Identify combinations
    4. Plan the experiment
    5. Run the experiment
    6. Analyze and take action
  • Full factorial & fractional factorial 
  • Nomenclature & # of runs
  • Randomization, blocking and center point
  • Graphical & statistical analysis in Minitab
  • Determine the effect of factors and interactions
  • Determine the level of factors for optimal results 

Practical information

The course is arranged on request from companies with 6-15 participants. Courses can be tailored to your business needs, and your own data can be used in examples and assignments. 

Open courses are arranged according to the course calendar. 

Online course & online course with coaching can be started whenever you want. 

Lunch, refreshments and drinks during classroom training are included, and you receive a course certificate upon completion.

Location

Classroom training is organized at the locations Lean Tech disposes at Lillestrøm (Svelleveien 33). Good access to parking spaces. It's 2 km from Lillestrøm train station.

Lean Tech has an agreement with Thon hotels and can set up courses elsewhere if needed. It is also possible to arrange business courses at the Company's location.

Instructor

Instructor Sissel Pedersen Lundeby is IASSC (International association for Six Sigma certification) accredited trainer associate (only-one in Norway per August 2019):

"This accreditation publically reflects that you have met the standards established by IASSC such that those who participate in a training program led by you can expect to receive an acceptable level of knowledge transfer consistent with the Lean Six Sigma belt Bodies of Knowledge as established by IASSC."

Sissel has a Master in Chemical Engineering from NTNU (Norwegian University of Science and Technology) and 20 year's experience within manufacturing and environmental technology. In 2002 she started working at a US company where she was introduced to Six Sigma and completed her Black Belt certification. In 2017, she was also certified Black Belt through IASSC.

Sissel has positive experience using Lean Six Sigma to improve and focuses on measurable results. The courses use practical, recognizable examples and communicate Lean Six Sigma in a way that is easy to understand.
