DOE Simplified: Practical Tools for Effective Experimentation, 2nd Edition
by Mark J. Anderson & Patrick J. Whitcomb
Design of Experiments (DOE) is a planned approach for determining cause and effect relationships that can be applied to any process with measurable inputs and outputs. DOE provides a statistical means for analyzing how numerous variables interact.
In DOE Simplified—a comprehensive introductory text geared towards readers with minimal statistical background—the authors take a fresh and lively approach to learning the fundamentals. The book covers:
- Basic statistics for DOE
- Methods for collecting and displaying data
- How to draw inferences from data
- The purpose of confidence intervals
- Comparative experiments for testing hypotheses
- Blocking sources of variation from analysis
- Two-level factorial designs
- Fractional factorials
- Minimum-run designs
- Analysis of variance.
Also included is a free 180-day trial version of Design-Ease® DOE software
“Mark and Pat have done it again! They have somehow managed to make statistics both interesting and understandable to an encompassing audience.”
-- Bill Pedersen, PhD, PE, President, Arrowhead Innovations, Inc., Assistant Professor, University of Minnesota Duluth
“I received the book and I have to tell you, so far this is one of the best books I have read for DOE. It explains everything in a very simple manner with excellent examples. As soon as I finish this one, I am starting the "RSM Simplified" book.”
-- Krizia M. Karry, NSF Graduate Research Fellow, Rutgers University

Jumpstart your learning of DOE by participating in the DOE Simplified Launch Pad self-study program, which includes a series of voiced-over presentations on the first three chapters of the DOE Simplified book. For more information, click here.
“I read the whole DOE Simplified book and watched all the Launch Pad videos for chapters 1 to 3. I really liked it! It helps in understanding the basics. I like the philosophy of "learn DoE by applying it." It is very scholarly. I am interested now in reading the RSM Simplified book. I can definitely recommend the book and the Launch Pad to my colleagues. Thank you for writing this wonderful book and for doing the videos!”
