Designed Experiments for Pharma

July 20, 2020 - July 23, 2020

Early Bird deadline - June 22


Customized to meet the specialized needs of the pharma industry, learn how to use factorial and response surface designs to discover key factor interactions that maximize product performance. Use optimization to explore process settings and identify the "sweet spot" where all specifications can be met. Experimenters will set up appropriate designs, select representative models, and generate contour plots. Later in class, get an intro to Quality by Design objectives for DOE, and move into mixture designs for optimal formuations. Plus, review more advanced techniques to design for constrained systems, optimize product formulas, and study mixture and process variables.

This course runs for 4 days, with daily 3.5-hour Zoom classroom instruction. (Monday - Thursday 9:00am - 12:30pm USA Central Time)
