Design of Experiments

What is Design of Experiments?

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a systematic and scientific approach to design, conduct, analyze, and interpret experiments. It is used to optimize the performance of a system or process by identifying the factors that influence the outcome and testing their impact through controlled experiments.

DOE involves:

  • Identifying the variables (factors) that influence the outcome of the experiment
  • Developing a hypothesis about how these variables will affect the outcome
  • Setting up a controlled experiment to test the hypothesis
  • Analyzing the results to determine the effect of the variables on the outcome
  • Interpreting the results and making recommendations for improving the system or process based on the findings.

DOE is used in a wide range of fields, including engineering, manufacturing, and healthcare, to optimize processes, improve products, and solve problems. It is a powerful tool for understanding complex systems and making data-driven decisions.
