Description
Welcome to "Design of Expents for Optimisation"!
Expentation plays an important role in science, technology, product design and formulation, commercialization, and process improvement. A well-designed expent is essential once the results and conclusions that can be drawn from the expent depend on the way the data is collected.
This course will cover the basic concepts behind the Response Surface Methodology and Expental Designs for maximising or minimising response variables.
This is not a bner course, so to get the most of it, you need to be familiar with some basic concepts underlying the design of expents, such as analysis of variance and factorial designs.
You can find it in my course "Design and Analysis of Expents" or on several other courses and resources on the market.
The course starts with a basic introduction to linear regression models and how to build regression models to fit expental data and check the model adequacy. The next section covers expental designs for linear models and the use of central points to check the model's linearity (lack-of-fit). By the end of the section, we will be using linear models to fit expents with inaccurate levels in the design factors and missing observations.
By then, we will be ready for Response Surface Methodology. We will start with a factorial design to fit a linear model and find the path of the steepest ascent. And then, we are going to use a central composite design to fit a quadratic model and find the expental conditions that maximise the response. Moreover, we will see how to analyse several responses simultaneously using two very illustrative and broad examples.
Finally, we will see how to use three-level designs: Box-Behnken and face-centred composite designs.
The whole learning process is illustrated with real examples from researchers in the industry and in the academy.
The analysis of the data will be performed using R-Studio. Although this is not an R course, even students that are not familiar with R can enrol in it. The R codes and the data files used in the course can be ed, the functions will be briefly explained, and the codes can be easily adapted to analyse the student's own data.
However, if you are already familiar with using other DoE software, feel free to the data and reproduce the analysis using the software of your choice. The results will be exactly the same.
Any person who performs expents can benefit from this course, mainly researchers from the academy and the industry, Master and PhD students and eeers.
Who this course is for:
Researchers;
Eeers;
Anyone who performs and analyse expents.
