DOEs 201: Screening and Reduced Designs
August 30, 2022 @ 10AM New York Presenter: Ron Lasky, Ph.D., PE, Senior Technologist
A short time ago we covered DOE 101, the basics of Design of Experiments in an Insider Series Webinar You can watch this webinar here. DOE 201 is a follow on Insider Series Webinar on advanced DOE techniques, mostly what are called screening and reduced designs. Screening designs are performed when there are so many factors to analyze that performing a DOE with all of the factors at a high number of factor levels is not practical. More

A short time ago we covered DOE 101, the basics of Design of Experiments in an Insider Series Webinar You can watch this webinar here. DOE 201 is a follow on Insider Series Webinar on advanced DOE techniques, mostly what are called screening and reduced designs. Screening designs are performed when there are so many factors to analyze that performing a DOE with all of the factors at a high number of factor levels is not practical. As an example, suppose there is a DOE with 6 factors, each at 4 levels. This DOE would require at least 46 = 4096 runs. 

In cases like this one, screening experiments are often performed to determine which factors are important. In a screening experiment, each factor is only evaluated at two levels. So in this case the number of data points, or runs, required is only 26 = 64. In some cases, it is possible to reduce the number of runs further by employing a fractional factorial design.

This webinar will discuss how to perform these screening and fractional factorial DOEs and the risks in doing so. In the webinar, several screening and fractional factorial DOEs will be analyzed with Minitab. The data will be given to the attendees so that they can practice on their own. A 30 day trial version of Minitab is available for free.

Are Utilities Ready for the EV Revolution?
September 8, 2022 @ 11:30AM EST Co-Hosts: Brian O’Leary, Global Accounts Manager, Global Head e-Mobility & Infrastructure, Kevin Hernandez, Loren McDonald
By 2030, electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to reach nearly 40 million vehicles on the road in the US and around 12% of all vehicles. This growth in EVs will demand a significant increase in charging infrastructure where people live, work, shop, and travel to — and the utility backbone of power generation, grid transmission, and local distribution.

By 2030, electric vehicles (EVs) are expected to reach nearly 40 million vehicles on the road in the US and around 12% of all vehicles. This growth in EVs will demand a significant increase in charging infrastructure where people live, work, shop, and travel to — and the utility backbone of power generation, grid transmission, and local distribution.

In this webcast, utility consultant and expert Kevin Hernandez of consulting firm ScottMadden, will share his thoughts on what he believes is the utility industry’s biggest business opportunity in 100 years — but also its largest challenge of which to take advantage. Hosts Brian O’Leary and Loren McDonald will dive into key topics with Kevin including:

  • The utility and public utility commission regulatory framework that can make it difficult for utilities to respond quickly to market changes
  • EV charging infrastructure, battery storage, vehicle to grid, smart charging, and more are significant opportunities for utilities in the future — which market opportunities are they likely to lead versus follow?
  • Supplying power to residential and commercial customers is all about data. How will utilities leverage their existing customer relationships and data analytics to best manage and monetize the expected explosive growth in power demand from EV charging infrastructure.

Statistical Process Control (SPC) 101 web logo
Statistical Process Control (SPC) 101
November 8, 2022 @ 10AM New York Presenter: Ron Lasky, Ph.D., PE, Senior Technologist

This Insider Series Webinar will cover statistical process control (SPC). SPC is an important tool in controlling SMT assembly processes, especially stencil printing. 

The webinar will start with a discussion of the 6 Ms of variation and then delineate common cause and special cause variation. The difference between precision and accuracy will then be clarified. After discussing the precision tolerance ratio, the technique to perform a Gage R&R (Repeatability and Reproducibility) analysis will be presented. Process control charts, and their development by Walter Shewhart, will then be discussed including the Shewhart Rules. Several sets of SPC Xbar-R and C Chart data will then be plotted and analyzed with Minitab®. A 30 day trial version of Minitab is available for free.
