DOE and Regression Theory

  • Theodore T. AllenEmail author


As is the case for other six sigma-related methods, practitioners of six sigma have demonstrated that it is possible to derive value from design of experiments (DOE) and regression with little or no knowledge of statistical theory. However, understanding the implications of probability theory can be intellectually satisfying and enhance the chances of successful implementations.
