Design and Analysis of Experiments
Syllabus – Spring 2013
Course Objectives
This course provides an introduction to designing experiments and analyzing their results. It is
intended for engineers and scientists who perform experiments or serve as advisors to
experimentation in industrial settings. Students must have an understanding of basic statistical
concepts including the use of the normal probability distribution, the central limit theorem,
forming confidence intervals, performing hypothesis tests, and model building using the method of
least squares. Most of these topics will be reviewed as they are needed.
The objectives of this course are for you to develop the skills necessary to efficiently and
effectively design and analyze experiments. The course topics include experiment planning,
designs, and statistical analysis of the results. Applications in most areas of engineering including
aeronautical, electrical, mechanical, chemical, industrial, and civil will be presented and discussed.
Experimentation is beneficial in all phases of industrial processes including new product design and
development, process development, and manufacturing process improvement. Using these
techniques, students will be able to develop successful experiments that can lead to reduced
development lead time, enhanced process performance, and improved product quality.

EDGE students
You are bound by the academic honor policy of the university. Violations of the
academic honor code will be reported. Penalties include, but are not limited to
1) a failing grade on an assignment or exam and 2) a failing course grade.
Students with disabilities needing academic accommodation should: (1) register
with and provide documentation to the Student Disability Resource Center; (2)
bring a letter to the instructor indicating the need for accommodation and what
type. This should be done during the first week.
Professionalism is evaluated based on the conduct throughout the semester.
Students are expected to come to class prepared, attend class when possible,
turn in assignments on time, and participate using the means available.
No make-up exams will be granted unless prior approval is obtained from the
instructor. Make-ups may contain written and oral portions.
EDGE distance students will have a 3 day window following the in-class exam
date to schedule and complete exam with their proctor
