Rich Products used DOE to develop an all-natural bread dough that would met the same quality and taste standards as their popular conventional bread doughs.
Alberto-Culver developed a new line of scrubs using design of experiments (DOE) that far exceeds the performance of what they thought was possible.
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.
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.
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.
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.
