Read this case and then determine what type of situation this is that DOE was used effectively.

Fireman, Jerry. (n.d.), Rich Products Uses Statistics to Improve the Taste of Natural Bread Dough. Retrieved on Sept. 8, 2009, from http://www.statease.com/pubs/richproducts.pdf

The paper should first review and summarize the case. Then state your position regarding which type of DOE situation is represented in the case and support your position using the information you have learned about DOE and DOE situation types. Be sure to include references.

Solution Summary

This report report provides a brief description of two experimental designs - the design on experiment ( DOE ) and one-factor-at-a-time (OFAT), in solving problem on optimization. OFAT was found to be time consuming and expensive while the DOE was found to be less time consuming and consequently, less expensive. DOE was further found to be user-friendly especially to researchers who are not that expert in statistical methods. Through the use of DOE, Rich Products was able to identify the best recipe that best meets both the company and customer requirements.
