Design of Experiments: Applications in Thin Film Deposition


8:30am-4:30pm, Tuesday, June 7th, 2022, Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel, Albuquerque, NM

Course Objectives

The course content has been structured to help the student achieve the following objectives:

  1. Trained in statistical modeling and in the choice of experimental designs to use in scientific investigations.
  2. Be able to design and conduct an experiment efficiently.
  3. Be able to analyze experimental data effectively.
  4. Be able to apply new statistical analyses using Minitab, Excel, or other software.

Course Description:

This course will teach how to design, conduct, and analyze experiments.  The strategies of experimentation, such as identifying the key input and output variables, blocking factors, and the number of experiments, required to draw objective conclusions will be discussed. The course will examine how to analyze the experimental data and draw conclusions from it.  In particular, the logic of hypothesis testing, t-test, Z-test, the Analysis of Variances (ANOVA), factorial and fractional factorial designs will be discussed in detail.  The course includes a review of the modest probability and statistics background necessary for conducting and analyzing scientific experimentation. Mostly Excel will be used to demonstrate the problems.  Minitab will also be introduced for the design of experiments. The example problems will be drawn from experimentations involving thin film depositions.
