Design and Analysis of Experiments by Dr. Doug Montgomery

5 half-day Private webinar to be presented Monday April 29th , Wednesday May 1st , Friday May 10th , Monday May 13th , Wednesday May 15th


  1. What are designed experiments?
  2. Why do experiments in the engineering world need to be “designed”?
  3. Screening experiments versus optimization experiments
  4. Strategy of experimentation
  5. Factors and responses
  6. Some simple examples and review of statistics fundamentals
  7. Main effects and interactions
  8. A process for successfully designing and conducting experiments

Factorial Experiments

  • A simple 2-factor factorial (example)
  • The general factorial experiment
  • The 22 factorial
  • Overview of the analysis procedure for a factorial
  • The 23 factorial
  • Replication of a factorial (why, how much)
  • More than three factors, unreplicated 2k factorials
  • Center points in 2k factorial designs
  • Follow-up and confirmation experiments

Fractional Factorial Experiments

  • The one-half fraction of the 2k design
  • Smaller fractions
  • Follow-up experiments
  • Special types of fractional factorials
  • Methods for constructing custom fractional designs


  • Is there life after factor screening?
  • Are we in the right operating region (and if not, now what)?
  • Augmenting a 2k design to fit a second-order model
  • Optimization of a second-order model
  • Designs for fitting response surfaces

Other Potential Topics

  • Designs with random effects
  • Nested designs
