Regional Conference hosted by:

American Society for Quality Rochester Section

Wednesday September 26th 2018

For the first time, the ASQRS Conference will include an all day training session on Design of Experiments (DOE) for the person not acquainted with the process of DOE. Training will be given by Vince Vezza (

Presentations will run in parallel with the
DOE for Non-Statisticians Training

The intention of this course is to go through the process of designing an experiment without the high intensity of mathematics/statistics. This will be an introduction to the DOE process. A statistically designed experiment is an excellent tool for helping identify the important factors/variables in any process. Not only can it help identify these factors / variables but it will help you understand how these factors influence each other when taken as a whole.

This short course of Design of Experiments is for people not acquainted with the DOE process, but who are interested in the process. No heavy statistical calculations are required, that is left for the statistician/engineer once the experimental runs are completed and data collected. However, mean, standard deviation, variance and analysis of variance with the F test will be reviewed. They will help you understand what is involved in a designed experiment process.

An experiment will be designed, conducted and analyzed in class.

A designed experiment is accomplished by the following steps:

  • Determine who should be involved in design
  • Brainstorming
  • Design the experiment
  • Conduct the experiment
  • Collect data
  • Analyze data
  • Interpret the results
  • Confirm experiment
  • Report
