Research resources are too scarce to be squandered going down blind alleys and coming up empty handed at project end. We can no longer afford to play hunches or to rely on so called experts, whose opinions all differ, to guide research. Nor can we rely on the gross inefficiencies of old-fashioned one-factor-at-a-time experimentation to guide decisions. Instead, R&D must proceed systematically and with a goal of using unbiased data to guide decisions, following an overall strategy guided by statistical thinking and the scientific method.
In this seminar, Lynne B. Hare, Ph.D. will discuss the requirements essential to systematic experimentation and techniques for sequential experimentation essential to build knowledge leading rapidly to the successful completion of organizational goals. Details of screening designs for determining the most influential among many, many factors, characterizing designs for the identification of interactions and optimizing designs will be discussed in the seminar, with examples. You will also find a mixture of designs for formulations and other commonly employed designs.
