SOT 310 - Design of Experiments: Concepts and Applications

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 DoD test practitioners, engineers and analysts, introduces and expands essential DOE techniques, with emphasis on the methodical employment of tailorable tools in comprehensive DOE applications. Graduates will gain immediate skills for building defensible test and analysis plans, whose ultimate goal is an efficient and effective approach for understanding system performance and delivering quality information to decision makers.

To Apply

Grade Restrictions: The course is open to Acquisition and Sustainment officers (0-1 and above), enlisted personnel (E-5 and above), and civilians (GS-7 and above).

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.
