Be introduced to a range of powerful tools and methods which can be applied to your individual/organisational test programs to maximise return on investment. The course demonstrates why Design Of Experiments (DOE) is the most effective and efficient means to conduct testing of complex systems and covers activities which must precede a DOE. Testing strategies such as screening, modelling and confirmation are addressed,  including how they fit into an integrated developmental and operational testing strategy. Simple Rules of Thumb are provided for sample size and design selection, along with  determining significance and power.
