Response Surface Methods for Process Optimization (RSM) (2 days)
Achieve Peak Performance
Response Surface Methods (RSM) can lead you to the peak of process performance. The RSM for Process Optimization workshop teaches you how to produce precise maps based on statistical models.
Learn how to put all your responses together via sophisticated optimization approaches. Find the "sweet spot" where you meet all specifications at minimal cost.
Learn Sophisticated Statistical Methods
During the RSM for Process Optimization workshop you will learn how to:
- Set up central composite (CCD), Box-Behnken and Optimal RSM designs
- Select appropriate regression models
- Evaluate design properties
- Use FDS curves to adequately size designs
- Generate response surface contours
- Optimize multiple responses numerically
- Add multilinear constraints and categoric factors to optimal designs
"Clearly presented with emphasis on application."
—Dennis Passe, Food Scientist
Use Powerful Software to do Case Studies and Simulations
Design-Expert® software, used in the RSM for Process Optimization workshop, provides the essential computing power for RSM. Several simulations, interspersed throughout the workshop, test knowledge in a realistic fashion. Anderson and Whitcomb's text, "RSM Simplified," is optional.
"Using software helped me gain confidence."
—Bryan Baab, Senior Scientist
Note: If you work with formulations, the Mixture Design workshop may be more appropriate. Call 612-378-9449 and ask to speak with an instructor if you are unsure which workshop to take.
