This protocol template is an NFT digital asset intended to set forth the instructions to create and implement a design of experiment (DOE) program applicable for any type of equipment, product, material, or part number prior to entering into a process validation as part of your GMP manufacturing operations.  It describes the methodology (steps-by-steps) for the execution of the design of experiment (DOE) activities according to the FDA process validation guidelines.

Purpose of the Design of Experiment Protocol Template

This DOE design of the experiment protocol template brings the guideline to make sure that your equipment and products are suitable to work together at the expected optimum parameters and conditions, according to its intended use and applicable standard operating procedures.

This document will identify the instructions step-by-step to verify that the equipment has been challenged at its optimum conditions as per design specifications and manufacturing requirements for the products, components, and materials applicable to your company.

Design of Experiment Protocol Template Description

This design of experiments protocol can be customized and adjusted for your company’s needs and may help you to reach consistency in your manufacturing operations before starting a process validation.

Consistency is achieved when performance is close to the target with less variation.

4 Optimization Approaches in the Design of Experiments

To improve quality and consistency, four (4) optimization approaches can be used:

  1. Find the factors-level combination that reduces performance variability. Identify the significant factors and their relative influences on the variability of results.
  2. Adjust the factors-levels that bring performance closer to the target.
  3. Determine the trend influence of factors and interactions under the study.
  4. Establish the optimum conditions for the product or process, along with an estimate of the contribution of each individual factor.

10 Steps to Implement a Design of Experiment Using the Taguchi Method for Process Optimization.

The following 10 steps summarize the instructions necessary to implement a complete design of experiments using the Taguchi Methods for process optimization before moving forward with a process validation:

Step 1. Determine the number of factors.

Step 2. Determine the number of levels.

Step 3. Select the most suitable Orthogonal Array.

Step 4. Determine the number of experiments

Step 5. Find the corresponding orthogonal array table

Step 6. Determine the CQA performance characteristics to measure the process output

Step 7. Add the Critical Process Parameters and CQA performance characteristics

Step 8. Conduct the experiments, running the experiments

Step 9. Perform the statistical analysis and calculations

Computation of Average Performance

Projection of the Optimum Performance

Step 10 Predict the optimal output performance level

5 Steps to Predict an Expect Response using Design of Experiment

A prediction of the expected response under the optimum conditions can be obtained following the next 5 steps:

  1. Brainstorm the quality characteristics and design parameters important to the product/process under study.
  2. Design the experiment to prescribe individual test recipes.
  3. Conduct the experiments.
  4. Analyze the results to determine the optimum conditions.
  5. Run a confirmation test(s) using the optimum conditions.

Important Note:

Once you build your own design of the experiment program using this protocol template, you can resell the same NFT if you want in the NFT marketplace to make profits of your investment.

In addition, it allows you the mechanism to handle the design of experiment documentation related to your process parameters, part numbers, raw materials, and other product received from your suppliers that need to be addressed and optimized in the most simple way.




This protocol template describes how to perform the most relevant design of experiment’s activities applicable to your manufacturing processes in a practical way using twelve (12) template tables, as applicable to each case in your pharmaceutical and medical devices company:

Avoid Mistakes Implementing a Design of Experiment Program.

Step 1. Review the applicable design specification tolerances, current SOP standard operating procedure(s), and bills of materials concerned to each manufacturing process, product, and its components with their attributes and characteristics necessary from each supplier and client.

Step 2. Compare your design of the experiment protocol against your current practice and actual use of your production processes, machine parameters, and their configurations considering any update(s) or change control(s) made changes to specifications included in your design requirements and standard operating procedures.

Step 3. Also, consider the applicable FDA validation requirements versus your process validation studies performed previously in your company.

Step 4. Evaluate the process parameters, specifications, and results obtained in any previous process validation (PV) study.  Moreover, verify how you established your process validation acceptance criteria, risks, and how fast you need to perform and close each process validation (PV) package including any pending item or future improvement.

Step 5. Finally, implement a robust and efficient design of the experiment program to be used prior to initiating your process validation studies, to prevent surprises, gaps or discrepancies that could arise during the process validation execution.
