design of experiments (doe) for semiconductor processing (3 days)

​​Experiments are performed today in many research organizations to increase our understanding and knowledge of various scientific principles and processes. Experiments are often conducted in a series of trials or tests which produce quantifiable outcomes. One of the common approaches employed by many scientists and engineers today in experimentation is One-Variable-At-a-Time (OVAT), where we vary one variable at a time keeping all other variables in the experiment fixed (or constant).

This approach depends upon guesswork, luck, experience, and intuition for its success. Moreover, this type of experimentation requires large resources to obtain a limited amount of information about the scientific principle or process. OVAT experiment often is unreliable, inefficient, and time-consuming, and may yield false transfer functions for the scientific process. Statistical thinking and statistical methods play an important role in planning, conducting, analyzing, and interpreting data from scientific and engineering experiments. When several variables influence a certain characteristic of an item or principle, the best strategy is then to design an experiment so that valid, reliable, and sound conclusions can be drawn effectively, efficiently, and economically. DOE-DLS is a full 3-days classroom training.
