The QbD column: A QbD factorial experiment

A quick review of QbD The first blog post in this series described Quality by Design (QbD) in the pharmaceutical industry as  a systematic approach for developing drug products and drug manufacturing processes. Under QbD, statistically designed experiments are used to efficiently and effectively investigate how process and product factors […]

The QbD Column: Overview of Quality by Design

Developing new drugs is a complex, lengthy and expensive endeavor. When the process leads to an approved drug, the result is improved patient care and great benefits for the developers. But many promising drugs never live up to expectations. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), observing that new drug […]

Results of our designed experiment: Tasty iced tea

In my previous post, I described an experiment that my wife and I conducted to find a method for making delicious iced tea with juice. The factors we looked at were these: Tea type: black tea or oolong Steep method: hot water vs. cold water Steep time: short (5 minutes […]

Finding the best process operating conditions using 2 optimisation approaches

Scientists and engineers often need to find the best settings or operating conditions for their processes or products to maximise yield or performance. I will show you how the optimisation capabilities in JMP can help you work out the best settings to use. Somewhat surprisingly, the particular settings that are […]

Coming in JMP Pro 12: Four great features of Covering Arrays

Covering arrays are a powerful design tool that may be used to design test cases to efficiently test deterministic systems. For such systems, a particular input will always generate the same output and, as a result, standard statistical designs are usually inefficient. It turns out that failures in these systems […]
