DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS (DOE)
The application of geometric principles to statistical sampling
to obtain desired results. DOE minimizes the number of experiments
necessary to obtain the answer to a problem or minimizes the variance
of estimated coefficients obtained through regression.
FROM THE BAC AQS MANUAL: DOE is a systematic approach to purposeful
change in process inputs (parameters, factors) to observe corresponding change in outputs (responses). The
purpose of designing an experiment is to provide the most efficient
and economical methods of reaching valid and relevant conclusions about process inputs and effect on variation in process
