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

Step 3: Download the software

This programme includes hand-on exercises each day, which you can complete on your own computer using JMP’s statistical discovery software. You will need to download and activate a free trial of this software. Once activated this trial will last for 30 days. We recommend you download and activate your free trial two weeks prior to the start of the programme. You need to download your free trial directly from JMP's website.

Step 4: Claim your certificate

If you complete all five days of the programme then you will be eligible to receive a certificate of completion to enhance your CV or resume.
