Stat-Ease is proud to offer free webinars to those interested in Design of Experiments (DOE). Presented on a regular basis, topics range from beginner to advanced levels. Material may be new or drawn from our ever-popular DOE workshops.

See the list of upcoming and past webinars below. If you attended one of our presentations (or just wish you had) we invite you to download a copy of it for your review.

If there is a particular subject you are interested in and don't see below, send us an e-mail and let us know. If there is enough interest, we may present your topic in a future webinar.

Thank you for visiting Stat-Ease. We appreciate your interest!



Webinars

Stat-Ease webinars vary somewhat in length depending on the presenter and the particular session—mainly due to breaks for questions: Plan for 45 minutes to 1.5 hours, with 1 hour being the target median. When developing these one-hour educational sessions, our presenters often draw valuable material from Stat-Ease DOE workshops.

Attendance may be limited for these webinar sessions. To sign up for the current webinar, look for the date and time you would like to attend and click on the corresponding link. Contact our Client Specialist, Rachel Pollack, with any questions.

Please note: We recommend you test your computer in advance. Click here for details.

Testimonial:
"Thank you very much for the continuing education opportunities through Stat-Ease's webinar offerings. Brooks did a fine job yesterday presenting RSM Part 2. I've also listened to past webinars presented by other instructors and they also do an excellent job of explaining DOE. Thank you, Stat-Ease!"
—Jeff Reimer, Principal Scientist, Sigma-Aldrich Corporation

  1. Design-Expert® Software: Why Version 9 is Mighty Fine!

    Level: Beginner
    First presented on Mar 4, 2014

    In this webinar, Mark Anderson, Principal of Stat-Ease, Inc., welcomes you to version 9 of Design-Expert software (DX9) for design of experiments (DOE). He hits on the highlights of what’s new and what’s in it for you. For a preview of what’s in store, look here. As a practical matter, because this accommodates hard-to-change factors, the most valuable addition may well be split-plot design and analysis for factorials—two-level, multilevel categoric (general), and optimal. Mark provides an enlightening demonstration of this and many other cool new features that provide convincing evidence of why version 9 is mighty fine!

  2. How Many Runs Do I Need? How to Use Power and Precision to Size Factorial, Response Surface Method and Mixture Designs

    Level: Intermediate
    First presented on Oct 14, 2013

    This webinar by Brooks Henderson answers the question: "How many runs do I really need?". It begins with a review of power calculations to determine if a factorial design provides enough runs to detect important effects. Power, however, is not the appropriate tool to evaluate mixture and response surface method (RSM) designs. To properly size these experiments for optimization of products and processes, we advise using fraction of design space (FDS) as a tool. It will also discuss power, FDS, and how to apply these measures appropriately for sizing experiment designs—including how to determine a design space that meets specifications for Quality by Design (QbD).

  3. Quality by Design (QbD) Space for Pharmaceuticals and Beyond

    Level: Intermediate
    First presented on Jul 1, 2013

    Quality by Design (QbD) is a hot topic in the pharmaceutical industry, heavily promoted by the FDA. However, these tools should be used by every industry interested in producing high-quality products. The general concepts are not new, but the tools to implement them have dramatically improved in the last few years. This presentation by Wayne Adams provides a briefing on QbD along with state-of-the-art response surface methods (RSMs) for developing a robust design space.

  4. How to Get Started with Design-Expert® Software

    Level: Beginner
    First presented on Mar 24, 2013

    Geared toward novices to design of experiments (DOE) and Design-Expert software, this presentation by Shari Kraber demonstrates how to plan, design and analyze a powerful multifactor test. She also provides a ‘heads-up’ on mistakes made by unsuspecting beginners that lead to DOE failures. The goal of this webinar is to set you up for success using Stat-Ease software for your experiments!.

  5. Real-Life DOE

    Level: Beginner
    First presented on Dec 2, 2012

    Mark Anderson, principal of Stat-Ease, Inc.(Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) and co-author of the DOE/RSM Simplified textbook series (Productivity, Inc., New York, NY) provides some tricks of the trade that salvaged outstanding results from actual experiments. If you are just beginning with factorial screening and characterization experiments, this webinar is for you! More advanced practitioners might also glean an “aha!” as well, and/or follow up afterward with suggestions that Mark can share via his DOE FAQ Alert e-mail newsletter.

  6. Overview of Robust Design, Propagation of Error, and Tolerance Analysis

    Level: Advanced
    First presented on Jul 10, 2012

    Response Surface Methods (RSM) can lead you to the peak of process performance. In this advanced-level webinar, Stat-Ease Consultant Pat Whitcomb discusses robust design, propagation of error, and tolerance analysis. Propagation of error (POE) accounts for variation transmitted from deviations in factor levels. It finds the flats—high plateaus or broad valleys of response, whichever direction one wants to go—maximum or minimum; respectively. Tolerance analysis drills down to the variation of individual units, thus facilitating improvement of process capability.

    If you are working to make your system more robust, this webinar is for you! It will be especially valuable to those involved in Design for Six Sigma (DFSS).
