Experimental Practices Program

The Experimental Practices program provides the participant with the fundamental tools and procedures required to function in the world of statistical experimental design. This program includes all prerequisite courses that are needed to fully comprehend and capitalize on the training of experimental design, commonly referred to as "Design of Experiments" or simply DOE.

This program will arm the participant with the insights necessary to plan, execute, analyze, interpret and report the results of statistically designed experiments as well as how the application of a statistically designed experiment can be used to establish the optimum operating conditions for one or more input variables, also called "adjustment factors".

Participants will learn how to translate a practical problem into a statistical problem and then isolate simple and complex cause-and-effect relationships which often remain undetected with traditional problem-solving methods. Students will learn how to depict and communicate the results of a statistics-based experiment in down-to-earth language.

Of special interest, the instructional content even provides the participant with the helpful insights, short-cuts and tips on how to establish a post-experiment action plan.

A heavy emphasis is placed on the application of fractional factorial experiments. Of course, such experiments are intended to discover the "vital few" variables as contrasted to the "trivial many." In short, fractional factorial experiments can provide a "screen" for filtering potentially causal variables, thereby allowing the practitioner to discover improvement leverage.

From this frame of reference, the participant will also learn how to use fractional factorial experiments as an economy measure when the availability of samples or the cost of sampling restricts the use of a full factorial experiment. In addition, a primary focus is placed on the key design principles, primary methods of data analysis, and powerful graphical procedures that drives success. From here, the participant is fully prepared to move on to more advanced experimental methods and statistical procedures.

Reinforcement of major concepts, techniques, and applications is realized through exercises, scenarios, case studies, and field studies. Through this training, the participant will gain tremendous insight into the field of statistically designed experiments as well as the logic and reasoning which underlies Six Sigma and business process improvement.
