Develop an optimal study strategy designed to model, in a minimum number of experiments, a set of responses capable of describing a given process with the objective of empirically describing the phenomena involved or optimizing operating conditions.

This course is offered in the form of problem-based learning, thus promoting the practice over theory. Sessions operating software will be implemented during this APP.

- Introduction to empirical modeling and design of experiments
empirical models, response surface curves and isoresponse
- objective and model selection (screening, prediction, response surface methodology RSM, Matrix of experience and design matrix
- Linear models without interaction : Hadamard matrices (Plackett & Burman)
- Linear models with all interactions : Full factorial design with 2 levels
- Linear models with interactions limited : Principle of construction of a fractional factorial design with 2 levels (aka, generators); Taguchi orthogonal tables 2 levels
- Models of the second degree and corresponding plans : Taguchi orthogonal tables with 3 levels, 3-level factorial designs ; Central composite designs in a sphere or a cube, Box-Behnken plans etc..
- optimization of simple answer or multi-answers (overlapping curves isoresponse, additive response weighted coefficient of desirability)

Targeted skills : "Develop solutions, innovate", "Team management"
