We’re delighted to be joined by Pilar Gomez-Jimenez, principal scientist at Johnson Matthey, as our special guest for this webinar.

Are you interested in learning how to apply Design of Experiments (DoE) and explore the benefits everyone is talking about, but not sure where or how to start? Starting with DoE requires a change in the way you think about the problem you are trying to solve, which changes how you approach your experimentation. This change in your mindset can be challenging! In this webinar we will help you take the first steps in DoE with JMP and transition from the traditional mindset to the DoE mindset.

Global science and chemicals company Johnson Matthey use advanced techniques and DoE to deliver the sustainable technologies of the future, shaped around their customers’ and the chemical community’s needs. Using knowledge of chemistry and its applications, they research, develop and innovate solutions to making the world a cleaner and healthier place.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • What is the DoE mindset?
  • How to start to develop your DoE mindset
  • How to apply the DoE mindset to your job/research effectively using JMP
  • How to help others in your team to develop the mindset
