Mixture Design for Optimal Formulations

Minneapolis, MN
July 15, 2020 - July 16, 2020

Early bird deadline June 3, 2020.


In this 2-day hands-on workshop, formulators learn how to use mixture designs to discover key ingredient combinations that maximize product performance. Then they use optimization to explore their formulations and identify the "sweet spot" where all specifications can be met. Experimenters will: set up mixture-appropriate designs, select representative models, and generate contour plots in triangular space. Later in class, they will move into more advanced techniques to design for constrained mixture variables, optimize product formulas, screen mixture components, and study mixture and process variables.

A 10% discounted Early Bird rate applies to registrations made 6 weeks prior to the workshop date. A $200/person discount is applied for 2 or more attendees registering together. Price includes a $95 fee for workshop materials which is subject to state and local taxes.

Books, software and consulting are discounted 20% when purchased with a workshop.
