Alberto-Culver developed a new line of scrubs using design of experiments (DOE) that far exceeds the performance of what they thought was possible.
A statistically based design of experiments (DOE) approach developed specifically for mixtures was used to formulate a blend of rayon fibers that produced maximal tampon absorbency.
Diasorin recently used DOE to evaluate the robustness of its process for manufacturing an alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAT) assay.
An experimental investigation was carried out in the PT-1 in order to determine the best porosity distribution in order to maximize the reduction of the wall interference over the widest possible Mach number range. Over 360 test points were measured on different models and wall porosity configurations over the selected mach number range to find out the minimum interference configuration for the PT-1; however, as these results are not wind tunnel-specific, they are expected to be applicable to all similar facilities. The optimum porosity distribution has been achieved trough an experiment designed with a Modern Design Of Experiment (MDOE) approach.
Engineers at a major medical device manufacturer used RSM to successfully model a key process for their flagship product. The RSM model then became the foundation for development of robust specifications to ensure quality at six sigma levels.
A large printing company tasked a Lean Six Sigma project team with finding a way to reduce setup time and costs in a department consisting of 33 Kluge presses. The results of the DOE led to a reduction of 5% in printing costs by moving to a less expensive foil for that job, and other knowledge gained from the experiment led to a 40% reduction in setup time over the last two years.
This poster displays the abstract and results of an experiment done to optimize enzymatic assays. Experimenters tested buffer, detergent, salt, and cation combinations using a 384-well microtiter plate format. The presence of different detergents and their interactions with different buffers had a profound effect on the enzyme turnover.
