Kick start your career development with our free five-part online training programme on design of experiments, delivered by JMP

Design of Experiments (DoE) is the most effective way to empirically learn about technologies when there are many variables or factors to consider. Despite this, school and degree science curricula rarely teach these methods. In this fun and engaging training programme you will be introduced to DoE and you will see how it has enabled chemists to develop better solutions, faster. 

DoE can help you:

  • optimise a process to meet many targets (eg yield, impurity, material cost, cycle time) when there are many things you could change (eg pH, temperature, choice of solvent or base)
  • deliver more projects by maximising the return from your available resources
  • solve problems with manufacturing processes that should be routine but produce inconsistent results
  • provide insight into novel processes where textbooks and literature can’t provide answers

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 of using JMP’s statistical discovery software to support your learning.

A supportive learning experience

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 five webinars to receive a certificate to include in your CPD record, which you can use as evidence to support your Chartered Chemist (CChem) application.

How to claim your certificate

Add value to your own work

Using DoE will help you deliver results faster and more efficiently. By accelerating your R&D, and having the right tools to make critical resource decisions, you can save time and money, and get a much-needed edge in competitive markets.

Use and communicate data

Visualising experimental data in new ways to uncover fresh insights and give real impact to your presentations and communications with key stakeholders.

Registration

The programme runs from Monday 22 June to Friday 26 June. There will be a 45 minute interactive webinar each morning starting at 10.00 (BST) / 11.00 (CET). 

You can register for each day individually to suit your interests and availability. If you complete all five days then you will receive a certificate for inclusion in your CPD record. You can also use attendance on this programme as supporting evidence for your Chartered Chemist (CChem) application.

Phil was a key scientist in the development of numerous processes for the manufacture of colorants for digital printing at FujiFilm Imaging Colorants. Phil has a master’s degree and a PhD in chemistry, a master’s in applied statistics, and is a Chartered Chemist. Phil has  found learning about the data-driven approach to experimentation to be hugely fulfilling. It has also been a big part of many of the best moments in his career, which is why he is passionate about sharing these methods with chemists and other scientists.
