Improve Your Process with Design of Experiments
Do you ever find yourself wishing you could understand more about the system you are working with, but are told you don’t have the time to do additional reactions?
Experimental design (DoE) could be the answer to increasing the efficiency of your work, tackling challenging chemical problems, and getting more reliable results in shorter timeframes.
With every experiment you perform being used multiple times to generate mathematical models which can explain and predict within the whole reaction space, time is maximised, meaning greater understanding in fewer reactions.
In our ‘Design of Experiments for Chemists and Engineers’ course we cover the principles of DoE and its benefits over traditional methods and an introduction to Principal Component Analysis (PCA). A much-appreciated part of the course is the workshop sessions which include a chance to discuss your own chemistry. There will even be an opportunity to create a design to help you on your way to improve and speed up your processes. The course and workshops will encourage you to interrogate your chemistry with a more critical eye, think about all aspects of the chemistry and how to identify potentially important factors. We will cover case studies with examples from a range of chemical reactions in which DoE users (clients of PMCC) have generated more robust process with significant savings.
You will come away from the course knowing how to: use DoE efficiently to scope out reaction space and optimise new reactions; link DoE with process development and/or quality by design (QbD); develop novel, effective and robust solutions using DoE and know when DoE won’t necessarily add to reaction understanding and what other techniques you can use to probe more challenging processes.
The course will empower you to implement DoE in your work and strengthen your critical thinking skills.
Here’s what previous attendees had to say:
“A very informative and well organised course”
“Excellent course material and examples, a must for PR&D and production chemists”
“The concepts of DoE were explained very nicely, very helpful. Wish I could have done this sooner in my career, thank you!”
Synthetic chemists, analysts, chemical engineers, development and production chemists, and managers would benefit from attending this course.
