Experimental Design and Process Optimization delves deep into the design of experiments (DOE). The book includes Central Composite Rotational Design (CCRD), fractional factorial, and Plackett and Burman designs as a means to solve challenges in research and development as well as a tool for the improvement of the processes already implemented.
