Design of Experiments (DoE) is the most effective way to empirically learn about technologies when there are many variables or factors to consider.

In this fun, engaging and free three-part online training program on DoE, delivered by JMP, you will be introduced to DoE and discover how it enables scientists and engineers to develop better solutions faster.

In this workshop you will learn:

  • The fundamentals of DoE – gain a deeper understanding of how your product/system/process performs
  • How to build better, cheaper solutions – by exploiting the deeper knowledge gained you can determine how to achieve optimum performance, consistently and at a lower cost
  • How to reduce total experimental effort by 50% (often more) – by determining the best and minimal set of experimental combinations needed to address your questions upfront

The best way to learn DoE is to get started in applying DoE. We learn by doing. It is a journey, the more we practice, the more we learn.

This series of three one-hour workshops will provide inspirational examples of the use of DoE in many aspects of bringing products to market – including product design/discovery/development, process development/scale-up/transfer and analytical method development. It will also provide the necessary know-how to get going with your first DoEs along with resources to use during your continuous learning journey.

Whether you are new to DoE or want a refresher, this workshop series will inspire you to get going with DoE.

Programme benefits

The programme will provide you with a solid theoretical understanding of Design of Experiments, complemented by hands-on exercises that will give you experience using JMP’s statistical discovery software in support of your learning.

A supportive learning experience

The programme is led by JMP’s experts, with multiple facilitators on hand to answer questions and provide real-time assistance. Both the theory and practice of Design of Experiments will be explained and demonstrated – and then you’ll try it yourself using JMP’s popular statistical discovery software.

A powerful addition to your CV

Demonstrate a solid theoretical foundation in DoE as well as gaining valuable hands-on experience of using JMP’s statistical discovery software. Attend all three webinars to receive a certificate.
