The Design of Experiments (DoE) technique is an established method for the rational planning of measurements.
Screening Designs, optimization designs and mixture designs are all statistical tools aiming at providing more reliable conclusions with fewer measurements.
With the Experimental Design technique, you can:
MINIMIZE the number of measurements
DETERMINE the significant effect of influential factors
QUANTIFY the effect of influential factors
DETERMINE the optimum operating point of a process
OPTIMIZE a product recipe or formulation
MODEL the studied phenomenon
