Design and Analysis of Experiments After one brings a process to physical stability and quanti°es what it is capable of doing, it±s reasonable to consider fundamental changes to its con°guration/how it is run. Intelligent/e¢ cient data collection and analysis aimed at °nding fundamental process improvements is the subject of the °nal set of modules of this course. The topic is the "design and analysis of experiments," with the goal of eventually addressing complex situations where there are many "process knobs" (factors), each with multiple settings (levels) and thus many many potential ways that things could be done, and the object is to °nd good combinations of levels of important factors.

The Big Problem The °gure below illustrates the problem addressed in these last four modules. The noisy process output y is a/ected by variables x 1 , x 2 , x 3 and potentially other variables (both recognized and unrecognized). The question is how to set up the "control panel" (the settings of the "knobs" or values of some variables x 1 , x 2 , x 3 ) to collect data and e¢ ciently learn how to optimize the process to get desired values of y .

Samples from r Di/erent Experimental Conditions We begin with a most basic experimental scenario, where one has data consisting of observed responses, y , for some number, r , di/erent processes conditions. We± ll write y ij = the j th response in sample i (made under the i th set of process conditions) where sample sizes are n 1 , n 2 , . . . , n r .

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
