Design For…Webinar Series: DOE Applied to Secondary Operations for Plastic Parts

April 17 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Design of Experiments (DOE) has long been used with injection molding and extrusions. DOE is a statistically based methodology for developing empirical equations. The test structure and interpretation is highly effective and efficient. A less recognized DOE application area is for plastic part secondary operations. This can include plasma treatment, ultrasonic welding and bonding. We will discuss the basics about DOE and explore a few common case studies applications, to understand the power of DOE for manufacturing processes.


Presenter: Perry Parendo, President, Perry’s Solutions, LLC

Bio: Perry began developing and seeing results from his Design Of Experiments (DOE) techniques at the General Motors Research Labs in 1986. His unique insight into DOE has saved time and money while solving complex problems during product and process development. This paved the way for him to lead multi-million-dollar New Product Development (NPD) projects with international teams. He is a recognized thought leader and shares his practical insights with international audiences.

Parendo founded Perry’s Solutions, LLC in 2006 to help organizations with critical product development activities. He has consulted in a wide range of industries such as consumer products, biomedical products and heavy equipment. He is currently a regular columnist for Design News. He received his Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Minnesota.
