This five day course (being run over 4 long days for March 2018), extends on the advanced modern techniques for test design and analysis taught to systems engineers and project managers initially in foundational design of experiments (DOE) or design for six sigma (DFSS) either through the University of NSW’s masters subject (ZEIT 8034) or Air Academy Associates’ (AAA) Operational DOE course. Students who have been applying the basic test design and test analysis techniques to screen, model or validate system performance with packages like DOE PRO XL, SPC XL and rdExpert, will be introduced to more advanced functionality offered by Quantum XL and DFSS techniques to improve their test designing and analysis in the following areas:
Students who complete this course will be eligible in the following year to submit to a short examination and review of three case studies of their work by AAA in order to be Green Belt Industry accredited in DFSS techniques. This accreditation is well regarded in international industry.
“Excellent instructor for very tough subject, good interaction with class, great training materials, books, visuals, etc.”
“Overall, one of the very best training courses I have ever had. Top notch instructor, presentation, and knowledge skills.”
“I really enjoyed the team interactions and the excellent instructor. I have been to a number of courses and this has been my favorite in 10 years!”
“First course I have ever taken where exercises truly added to the understanding. The most clear and meaningful presentation on process improvement I have seen to date.”
