Taguchi Design of Experiments

Seminar Content

This two-day seminar will develop the knowledge and skills necessary to design, conduct and analyze industrial experiments using the Taguchi approach. Basic principles of experimental design and their applications to quality and productivity improvement projects will be presented.

Who Should Attend

This seminar is especially useful for individuals who want to understand and apply a collection of formal experimental procedures specifically designed to identify optimal process conditions. Quality engineers, Six Sigma Black Belts and those assigned responsibility for leading quality and productivity improvement teams will benefit from participating in this seminar.

Recommended Training and/or Experience

A basic knowledge of computational mathematics and a practical understanding of elementary applied statistics will be helpful.

Seminar Materials

Each participant will receive a seminar manual. Worksheets and spreadsheets for analyzing factorial experiments will also be provided.

Seminar Goals

Understand Taguchi Design of Experiment vs. Full Factorial Experiments
Demonstrate how to use Taguchi DOE methodology in the product realization process
Apply Taguchi DOE to analyze and improve everyday work / issues
