"In process development, you have to be fast, and if you use a DOE you can save more than 50% of your development time". - Christian Guhr

Design of Experiments (DOE) provides a data collection and analysis framework that can get more work done, with half the effort needed, to achieve product development tasks. The result is better work outcomes for scientists and engineers, increasing innovation capacity and reducing product development costs. 

In this video, we speak to Christian Guhr, a Process Engineer at BIOTRONIK, about his experience of using data analysis, and specifically Design of Experiments, to accelerate product development.

You’ll see how DOE is being used in a variety of development contexts including product, formulation, and analytical method development to accelerate new product introduction.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the key concepts of Design of Experiments (DOE).
  • How DOE is used to reduce time needed for product, formulation, and analytical method development.
  • Uncover the resources available to get the skills and tools needed to use DOE yourself.
