How design of experiments can transform the way we innovate

Can you use structured experiments to solve intractable problems and create novel products? With DOE, we actively manipulate factors according to a prespecified plan to gain useful, new understanding of relationships among the inputs and outputs. DOE allows us to make better use of existing data, solve problems we couldn’t solve before, improve our decision making and innovate. The methodology also leads us to new questions we should explore. By attending, you will learn the power of DOE to speed innovation; achieve faster, more predictable cycles; and save time. You’ll also hear real-world DOE case studies from prominent organizations that have a lot to share about their successes and challenges in implementing a structured approach to experimentation.
