"I just wanted to write and say thanks for an awesome course. It was great to experience this topic with your knowledge, expertise and excellent teaching style. I look forward to working with you again in the future." Matt Lindgren, Plasmon

"The best thing that ever happened in my career was getting to take your Design for Six Sigma classes. Your teaching and follow-up, including all the additional phone calls, were so helpful during my first couple of years using DFSS. Your training has led me to many fun roles. What I learned from you was instrumental to me commercializing two of our products which are virtually customer complaint free and have no performance complaints. Due to the DOE and intense modeling work you taught us, we managed to formulate to a very robust space. You are a fantastic teacher! Monica Johns, Global Quality Continuous Improvement Leader, British Petroleum

"I have taken two courses from Bob Launsby and both of them have been outstanding. He is an engaging speaker and wonderful teacher. In both courses, he tailored his teachings to the particular interests of the class, both in content and in level. Bob has a broad knowledge of designed experiments applied to research, development and manufacturing. He has been most helpful in guiding us in how to choose the best design for certain applications and his DOE Wisdom software is straightforward, flexible and easy to use. Also, Bob is very entertaining and makes learning (even statistics!) fun." J. Robin Cowdery, Ph.D., Heidelberg Digital, L.L.C.

"I want to thank you for your time with our GPRE Six Sigma class. The opportunities the learning open up to us seem endless. We should have a return on investment of 4K4! Your passion and knowledge is obvious. You are getting pretty good at ethanol too! Thanks again for everything!" Dwayne Braun, Green Plains Renewable Energy, Inc.

"The class was very effective for all the participants regardless of division, department, role, or prior DOE experience. We valued the customization to our industry in addition to the blend of statistical background and practical use of DOE tools." John Cadotte, Corning

"Thanks for a very successful training experience. I enjoyed the time learning about DOE and you're top of my list when we need additional training." Lawrence Rutan,Quality Assurance Manager, Roberts Swiss Inc.

"I have been using DOE Wisdom for 10 years with great results. The software is reliable, very easy and intuitive to use, and has great graphical output. I prefer Wisdom over Minitab for all my DOE process validation and product improvement projects. "

"The software is an excellent complement to the mold development process. The software helps in reducing the number of runs required to study the effect of each processing variable on the quality of the part and thereby saving machine time, employee time, material costs and money. The software is very easy to use; "No Experience Necessary". The controls are similar to any Windows based program and the results can be viewed in a matter of seconds. Given the ranges of the processing parameters, a particular process can be predicted by the software to target a particular dimension or a set of quality requirements. The software has the capability of accepting quantitative and qualitative inputs. Overall the software is a must for all those who are serious about developing robust injection molding processes and understanding the factors that affect their processes. Suhas Kulkarni, Molding International


"DOE Wisdom provides an intuitive, user-friendly interface along with useful statistics for more advanced analysis. Designed with the engineer and floor technician in mind, it is easy to get started with limited training. I can usually train someone with little DOE experience to use the software in less than a half hour. As they become more familiar with DOE, I can teach them to use the advanced techniques one step at a time. The great thing is that you don't need to be a statistician to use this and get value from it!" Mike Groleau, RJG Inc.


"What I like most about DOE Wisdom is its simplicity and flexibility. With a brief explanation from a colleague, I was able to understand and use the software. It has saved us time and money. The surface contour plots are a great tool to visually illustrate the results of a test. The support from the Launsby staff is excellent." Ralph Artigliere, Datascope


"(DOE Wisdom) does not require you to be an expert in DOE - it is very easy to use - data, graphics and analysis are processed in many formats."
Sid Shazly, Cascade Engineering


"Bob has presented several in-plant courses for us relative to Design of Experiments and statistics. I personally attended each course and found his teaching skills to be excellent. He was working with a group of about 15 engineers each time. Additionally, two of us attended his course on the multivariate technique of partial least squares of latent structures. Bob demonstrated the same technical and communication excellence as he did on-site.
His presentations were lively and informative. His examples were practical and thought provoking. I feel the students gained the most from his hands-on demonstration of concepts.
From that training, we have developed several individuals that have become habitual practitioners of designed experiments and the core of our DOE competency. Our product and process development group can trace hundreds of thousands of dollars of process improvements and improved product design directly to his training. The "Return on Investment" is excellent!
Bob has also consulted with us on particularly challenging experimental cases on an on-going basis for a number of years. He has been quite helpful in reviewing our designs and analyzing our results even while he is traveling. We are grateful for his help and hope to continue this valuable relationship for years to come." Dave Booth, Alcon Labs


"I have attended DOE and QFD training classes provided by Launsby Consulting and found both to be very valuable. Since Bob's classes are always a good balance of theoretical and practical knowledge, the techniques are easy to implement and ready for use." Doug Chapman

"I recently had an occasion to attend a seminar given by Robert Launsby, Straight Talk on Designing Experiments, that combined many of the DOE techniques that I had been exposed to in the past plus presented some new ones. Bob did a fantastic job at combining all of them into one seminar, discussing their pro's and con's, providing numerous real world examples of their use and presenting some dynamite experiments for seminar participants to conduct. This seminar is a must for those who are still doing one variable at a time experimentation." Peter Svendsen, Western Digital
