G588 - Applications of Experiment Design and Analysis in Reliability Engineering
Learn Design of Experiments ( DOE )
The G588 training seminar begins with the fundamentals of Design of Experiments (DOE) methods and continues with advanced concepts, principles and requirements.
The DOE training course presents concepts and software tools that you could use to help your organization:
- Design experiments that are effective for studying the factors that may affect a product or process.
- Analyze experimental results in order to identify the significant factors and evaluate ways to improve and optimize the design.
- Go beyond traditional DOE techniques in order to apply the proper analysis treatment for the response information that is often of interest to reliability engineers — product lifetime data.
