SOT 210 - Design of Experiments: Best Practices

Video placeholder

Design of Experiments (DOE) is a powerful test methodology recommended by DoD leadership for the development and implementation of rigorous Test and Evaluation (T&E) programs. This course, designed for all DoD personnel, provides foundational understanding of essential DOE techniques and complementary best practices for comprehensive experimental planning, with emphasis on both statistical and non-quantitative elements. Graduates will gain immediate skills for increased engagement within test planning teams, whose ultimate goal is an efficient and effective approach for understanding system performance and delivering quality information to decision makers.

To Apply

Grade Restrictions: None

Special Requirements: OSD policy guidance emphasizes that elements of experimental design be included in Test and Evaluation Master Plans TEMPs and Test Plans for approval of those documents. Science of Test is the structured process used to identify the metrics, factors, and levels that most directly affect test execution and that should be reflected in detailed test plans and TEMPs. SOT 210 no longer requires access to AFIT's network. A DD 2875 is not required.
