for planning and running experiments
||Important practical considerations
in planning and running experiments are
Check performance of gauges/measurement devices first
Keep the experiment as simple as possible
Get the runs over with as quickly as possible
Check that all planned runs are feasible
Watch out for process drifts and shifts during the run
Avoid unplanned changes (e.g. swap operators at half time)
Allow some time (and back-up material) for unexpected events
Obtain buy-in from all parties involved
Maintain effective ownership of each step in the experimental plan
Preserve all the raw data—do not keep only summary averages !
Record everything that happens
Reset equipment to its original state after the experiment.
