RSM Simplified: Optimizing Processes Using Response Surface Methods for Design of Experiments

by Mark J. Anderson & Patrick J. Whitcomb

RSM Simplified completely demystifies response surface methods (RSM)—a practical tool for design of experiments. Anyone with minimum technical training can understand and appreciate this book. The authors' simple-and-fun approach is for those who desire knowledge on response surface methods but dislike the academic nature of other books on the topic.

RSM Simplified, like its predecessor DOE Simplified, keeps formulas to a minimum and makes liberal use of figures, charts, graphs, and checklists. It offers many relevant examples, with amusing sidebars and do-it-yourself exercises that will lead readers to the peak potential for their product quality and process efficiency.

A free trial version of Design-Expert® DOE software is included with the book. 

"As an (almost) engineer in the semiconductor industry I enjoyed reading your book, RSM Simplified, and made use of it very successfully. :-) The style of writing is perfect for learning and using RSM designs! I don't think there is a comparable book on the market...I'm very impressed by your book, especially the easy way of explaining a very complicated topic."
Johannes Lachmann

"This book is perfect introductory material for quality and Six Sigma professionals who need to learn the tools for identifying critical process parameters and optimizing their processes."
Quality Progress, October 2005

"Even though I had virtually no idea what I was reading about, RSM Simplified was entertaining and enlightening...Unless the reader is engaged in basic research in pharmaceuticals or medicine, RSM Simplified won't have much applicability to the kind of data analysis done in most healthcare organizations. Read it for fun."
Journal for Healthcare Quality, March/April 2005

Sample Material: Read excerpts from RSM Simplified (from the original manuscript--not the final version)

  1. Excerpt on the strategy of DOE from Chapter 1.
