IJEDPO publishes original, contemporary research having substantiated and well-reasoned supporting evidence that shows potential for advancing industrial practice and strengthening the current theoretical base. It addresses broad coverage of applied experimental statistics and experimental design for understanding and enhancing processes or systems in the physical, chemical, engineering sciences, and cross-disciplinary problems, including quality, manufacturing, healthcare, human factors, pharmaceuticals, and service systems. While encouraging a board spectrum of contributions, its core interest lies in issues concerning statistical modelling/optimisation for process improvement.


 Topics covered include

  • Applied statistics and data analysis
  • Decision making under uncertainty
  • Design of experiments and analysis, experimental statistics
  • Healthcare systems, pharmaceutical engineering and science
  • Industrial engineering and operations research
  • Manufacturing science and systems, mechanical engineering
  • Multidisciplinary research
  • Process design and optimisation, modelling and simulation
  • Product and process design, robust design
  • Quality by design, quality control and engineering

More on this journal...

The use of statistical methods is becoming increasingly critical for process enhancement and optimisation in a variety of environments in many industries. The objective of IJEDPO is to contribute to the technical advancement of the field of experimental design and process optimisation by publishing papers that emphasise the practical applicability of new techniques and instructive examples of existing techniques by establishing active channels of communication between researchers and practitioners. The primary focus of this journal is on the state-of-the-art of experimental design and process optimisation, targeting today’s challenges and tomorrow’s needs.


IJEDPO provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and practitioners working in the broad field of experimental design and process optimisation to disseminate information and to assure knowledge transfer among various fields of theoretical developments and application areas.


IJEDPO publishes original papers, technical reports, and case studies. Review and tutorial papers are also acceptable if they are written in a style suitable for practicing engineering and science. For a special issue devoted to specific sub-field of experimental design and process optimisation, authors are encouraged to contact the Editor-in-Chief.
