The tools of problem solving for process improvement and the features and phases of efficient experiments are presented. The Design of Experiments (DOE) methods include designs with one variable, two-level factorial designs (full and partial), and Response Surface Methodology. The methods of empirical models building, testing and assessment using Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), and use of the models for process and product optimization are lectured and exercised. Design Expert 5 statistical software is used throughout the course.
