(22 questions) 
A. Design of Experiments (DOE)


Planning and organizing
experiments
Describe and apply the basic elements of experiment
planning and organizing, including determining
the experiment objective; selecting factors,
responses
and measurement methods; choosing the appropriate
design, etc. (Evaluation)


Design and analysis of
onefactor experiments
Construct these experiments such as completely
randomized block and Latin
square designs, and apply computational
and graphical methods to analyze and evaluate
the significance of results. (Evaluation)

Design and analysis of
fullfactorial
experiments
Construct these experiments and apply computational
and graphical methods to analyze and evaluate
the significance of results. (Evaluation)

Design and analysis of
twolevel fractional factorial experiments
Construct experiments (including
Taguchi designs) and apply computational
and graphical methods to analyze and evaluate
the significance of results; understand limitations
of fractional factorials due to confounding.
(Evaluation)

Taguchi robustness concept
Apply Taguchi robustness
concepts and techniques such
as signaltonoise
ratio, controllable and noise
factors, and robustness to external sources
of variability. (Analysis)

Mixture
experiments
Construct these experiments and apply computational
and graphical methods to analyze and evaluate
the significance of results. (Analysis)
B. Response Surface Methodology


Higherorder experiments
Construct experiments such as CCD,
Box
Behnken, etc., and apply computational
and graphical methods to analyze the significance
of results. (Analysis)
