Short Term Course on Design and Analysis of Experiments

The Production and Industrial Engineering Department, Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University) organized a five day Short Term Course (STC) on “Design and Analysis of Experiments” under the sponsorship of TEQIP-III from 20th to 24th January 2020.

The objective of this short term course was to impart knowledge of fundamentals and applications of design of experiments to faculty members, research scholars, and PG students of various fields and help them in conducting research work, especially in formulation and analysis part of a research problem. The participants gained insight about the various optimization techniques, practical knowledge of statistical software like Minitab, Design expertise and information about recent trends in conducting qualitative research.

The workshop was coordinated by Dr. Suman Kant, (Associate Professor, Department of Production and Industrial Engineering), Dr. R.S. Walia (Professor, Department of Production and Industrial Engineering), Dr. C.S. Jawalkar (Associate Professor, Department of Production and Industrial Engineering), Dr. N.M. Suri (Professor, Department of Production and Industrial Engineering) and Dr. M.M. Goud (Associate Professor & HOD, Department of Production and Industrial Engineering). Prof. Dheeraj Sanghi, Director, PEC Chandigarh was the Chief patron and Prof. Hari Singh , NIT Kurkshetra was the Chief guest for the Inaugural session on the first day of the course.

This course was attended by more than one hundred participants from all over the country including students, faculty, and personnel working in various domains of science and engineering. In the five day course, eminent field experts from prestigious organizations like IITs, NITs etc delivered expert lectures and discussed about the latest research issues on various topics like Response Surface Methodology, ANOVA & Factorial Design, Effective experimentation and Optimization techniques, How to conduct qualitative Research, Regression and Taguchi method. Practical session on software’s like MINITAB were also held on a daily basis.

Lectures related to Fundamentals of statistics, Sampling Distribution, ANOVA & Factorial Design, Taguchi optimization technique, Response Surface Methodology, and how to conduct research were also delivered during the course.
