How Design of Experiments Can Transform the Way We Innovate

Can you use structured experiments to solve intractable problems and create novel products?

Trying new things is foundational to innovation. If you work for an organization that is establishing new products or processes; or in an industry characterized by speed, precision or stiff competition; then you may have heard of design of experiments (DOE). 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.

George Box once said, “Discovering the unexpected is more important than confirming the known.” And non-intuitive findings and efficiencies gained using DOE can give you a significant competitive advantage.

Join us for keynote talks and a panel discussion where we’ll simplify the term DOE, turning it from overwhelming to imperative. Our speakers passionately advocate for every engineer and scientist to adopt DOE as an essential tool for efficient, effective discovery of practical insights. Attend and you’ll 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 implementing a structured approach to experimentation.
