The last 20 years have seen important advances on statistical experimental design. These advances have been both in methodology and in the scope of applications. Of particular interest is the application of designed experiments for process and product design, development and improvement. We present a three-phase methodology for process development and improvement based on statistically designed experiments, along with a comprehensive example for a surface mount technology process in the electronics industry.
