Be a #significantlybetter Problem Solver and/or Process Improvement Professional equipped with our Experimentation for Process Improvement Certification (EPIC)!

In this tool master certification program, participants will be equipped with the fundamental and essential concepts and theories of Design of Experiments and apply these via a simulated project and other learning elements.

At the end of the workshop session, participants should be able to:
✅ Interpret and apply basic statistical tools related to DOE using Minitab
✅ Understand the essentials of DOE methodology
✅ Plan, implement and analyze fundamental and practical industrial experiments
