Design of Experiments Training, DOE Training for Engineers


Design of Experiments Training, DOE Training for engineers course is designed to teach you both theory and hands-on requirements necessary to run and execute the DOE.

DOE or Design of Experiments is sometimes called a Statistically Designed Experiment. DOE is a considered to be a strategically planned and executed experiment to provide detailed information about the effect on a response variable due to one or more factors: One–Factor–at–a–Time (or OFAT).

DOE in general is a useful method to solving problems, optimizing, designing products, and manufacturing and engineering. In particular, DOE is applied for root cause quality analysis, developing optimized and robust designs, and producing analytical and mathematical models to forecast the system behavior. The DOE training for engineers seminar will provide you a combination of theory, discussion, and practical material to help you feel comfortable and fluent in executing the DOE.

Why TONEX’s Design of Experiments Training? DOE Training Course Description

The DOE training course for engineers will teach you what design of experiment to choose, how to execute the DOE, and how to analyze the DOE results. You also will get a chance to analyze different case studies and analyze them on paper and on the computer.

To sum up, through the DOE training course for engineers, you will gain sufficient knowledge and skills on how to design, perform, and analyze experiments in the industrial scales. You will learn about the principals of DOE and that how it is applied to improve the quality and efficiency of projects.


The Design of Experiments Training, DOE Training is a 2-day course designed for:

  • Quality managers and engineers
  • SPC coordinators
  • Quality control technicians
