Course Description

This course will empower you to extract maximum meaning from your data. They allow you to answer the questions – has there been a change in my process or product? Is this process or product different from this one?  Is there a correlation between these two or more factors and, if so, how can I predict future changes in my process or product? What do changes in these variables predict about changes in this variable?

Statistically designed experiments (DOE) apply the same principle methods you will learn in this course. However, while statistically designed experiments are the best way to confirm cause and effect, sometimes we haven’t had or it may be impractical to run designed experiments. These techniques give the next best option available to discover correlation and identity variables important to controlling and optimizing your processes and products and identifying root causes leading to effective corrective action.
