The third edition of DOE Simplified: Practical Tools for Effective Experimentation is now available. This comprehensive introductory text is geared towards readers with a minimal statistical background. In it, the authors take a fresh and lively approach to learning the fundamentals of experiment design and analysis. This edition includes a major revision of the software that accompanies the book (via trial download) and sets the stage for introducing experiment designs where the randomization of one or more hard-to-change factors can be restricted. It also includes a new chapter on split plots and adds coverage of a number of recent developments in the design and analysis of experiments.

On May 27th, Stat-Ease, Inc. and Systech Technocraft Services Pvt. Ltd. held the 1st Asian DOE User Meeting in Goa, India, followed by a workshop on the 28th–29th on Designed Experiments for Pharma (DEPH). There were a variety of interesting case studies presented by Design-Expert® software users, as well as keynote addresses by Stat-Ease founder, Pat Whitcomb, Stat-Ease principal Mark Anderson, and COO of CAMO Software Inc., Brad Swarbrick.

We had a great turnout, lively discussions, and productive networking during the meeting and mixer that followed. Most attendees stayed on for the two-day workshop and found it very beneficial. The location at the Vivanta by Taj - Panaji hotel in Goa, India was beautiful. We hope that you can join us for the next Asian DOE User Meeting (to be announced)!
