Full Factorial Design, Taguchi Design or Genetic Algorithms — Teaching Different Approaches to Design of Experiments

Part of the Studies in Classification, Data Analysis, and Knowledge Organization book series (STUDIES CLASS)


Design of Experiments (DoE) is of high interest in engineering to get robust and reproducible results with a minimum of experiments. Based on a simple experiment different approaches for DoE and experiences from an educational program will be shown. The simple example demonstrates how DoE can be applied for student education in an effective way. It shows as well how to teach some of the stepping stones of DoE. A proposal for a complex training module in DoE will be given.
