Applied Design of Experiments (DOE) II: Applied DOE for Test and Evaluation
|Course Title: Applied Design of Experiments (DOE) II: Applied DOE for Test and Evaluation|
|Program ID: DEF 5007P||Subject: Test & Evaluation|
Study lessons and case studies of the application of Design of Experiments (DOE) in Test and Evaluation (T&E). Learn the perspectives of both statisticians and Department of Defense testers on how DOE can be effectively applied to test design and overall system evaluation. Begin with a basic overview of statistic principles and hypothesis testing, then concentrate on test designs, analyzing data from tests, and how to handle difficulties that arise in test plans. Specific difficulties of interest will include limited live tests, combining live and virtual test data, working with very large test spaces, and analyzing systems with discontinuous or nonlinear responses.
How You Will Benefit
- Learn how to apply DOE to test design and interpret analysis for evaluation.
- Understand how to reduce the many potential input variables through literature searches, talking to experts, combining, and screening, if necessary, in order to get down to the vital few inputs
- Know alternative scientific approaches – including DOE – that can yield information about the outputs relative to the inputs
- Decide on the correct DOE design to use, if appropriate, for a particular problem
- Learn how to recover from difficulties encountered in analyzing test results
- Know how to portray DOE methods in Test Plans and DOE results in Test Reports
What Is Covered
- Basic Statistics Principles such as Mean, Variance, Power, Confidence Intervals, Factors, and Design Templates
- Selecting the Best Design for a Test
- Creating a Test Hypothesis Based on Requirements
Proper Use of Modeling and Simulation:
- Test Selection Purposes
- Data Result Purposes
Use the Course Skills in Up to Three Test Cases:
- Missile Testing (Limited Live Tests)
