Basic design of experiments is an essential part of any scientific investigation. As such statistical process design, monitoring and control are an integral part of the PAT concept. In this course the connection between theory and production process practice will be at the forefront.

The methods studied in this course will vary from year to year but each year the main topics are: statistical inference, (fractional) factorial design, computer generated design, Quality by Design, evolving operation, process/product optimization, measurement optimization, and optimization towards process robustness.

Computer exercises of simulated and real data using MODDE and MATLAB are an integrated part of the course. The student will receive an introduction to both programs.

It is expected that the student have competences corresponding to a course in basic statistics and the course Advanced Chemometrics with MATLAB.

The students will be introduced to the theory through lectures. The students will work individually and in groups on a data analytical problem using the taught concepts and software to analyze a problem. The results are formulated in a written report which is orally presented at a seminar at the end of the course.
The course introduces the student to advanced design of experiment methods with focus on Process Analytical Technological (PAT) relevance. The software packages used throughout the course are MODDE and MATLAB.

After completing the course the student should be able to:
Summarize basic and advanced design of experiment methods
Summarize basic and advanced process optimization methods
Summarize basic and advanced statistical process control methods

Perform statistical inference
Use (fractional) factorial design, advanced design methods and computer generated designs
Analyze experimental design data

Use and perform Quality by Design
Use and perform process/product optimization methods
Use and perform measurement optimization
Use and perform optimization towards process robustness
