Utilizing Fractional Factorial Experiments in Screening Studies

Live Webinar

  • 90 minutes

Experimentation is frequently performed using trial and error approaches which are extremely inefficient and rarely lead to optimal solutions. Furthermore, when it’s desired to understand the effect of multiple variables on an outcome (response), “one-factor-at-a-time” trials are often performed. Not only is this approach inefficient, but it also inhibits the ability to understand and model how multiple variables interact to jointly affect a response. Statistically based Design of Experiments provides a methodology for optimally developing process understanding via experimentation.

In this webinar join expert speaker Steven Wachs, where he will focus on the use of Fractional Factorial Experiments which are invaluable when a large number of factors must be investigated. 

Session Highlights:

Efficient use of Design of Experiments is indispensable for activities such as:

  • Fast and Efficient Problem Solving (root cause determination)

  • Shortening R&D Efforts

  • Optimizing Product Designs

  • Optimizing Manufacturing Processes

  • Developing Product or Process Specifications

  • Improving Quality and/or Reliability

  • The motivation for Structured Experimentation (DOE)

  • DOE Approach / Methodology

  • Fractional Factorial Experimental Designs

  • Design Resolution and Choosing an Appropriate Fraction

  • Other DOE Techniques

  • Developing Predictive Models

  • Case Study 

Why You Should Attend:

This webinar will review the key concepts behind the Design of Experiments. A strategy for utilizing sequential experiments to most efficiently understand and model a process is presented. The webinar will emphasize fractional factorial studies that are useful in the screening phase of experimentation. Several important techniques in experimental design (such as replication, blocking, and randomization) are introduced. A Case Study involving optimizing a manufacturing process with multiple responses is presented.

Who Should Attend:

  • Product development personnel

  • Quality personnel

  • Manufacturing personnel

  • Lab personnel

  • R&D personnel
