MKS Umetrics Announces Release of MODDE Pro 11

Design of Experiments Software Provides Product, Process Efficiency

Malmö, Sweden, May 27, 2015 - MKS Umetrics announces the release of MODDE Pro 11, a major upgrade to MODDE 10 that further develops unique probability contour plots, design space estimates and Proven Acceptable Range (PAR) communications. MODDE Pro 11 introduces optimized combinatorial designs for stability testing and other reduced multilevel combinatorial studies, and includes state of the art functionality for creating designs, analyzing results and supporting the Quality by Design initiative. The software offers guidance from start to finish for high quality, reliable results.

MODDE Pro 11 performs valuable quality analysis without relying on other software. Working with up to 32 factors and multiple responses, MODDE Pro 11 software takes into account uncertainties and variations in parameters, measurement systems and processes. It shows where risks for failure exist, as well as the probability of achieving results according to desired criteria. It facilitates a clearer understanding of complex processes and products, and provides efficient testing of new hypotheses.

MODDE Pro 11 is ideal for Design of Experiments at all levels of development, including the development of robust analytical methods for product and process verification. Its intuitive graphical interfaces and detailed data visualization combine to enable effective and accurate decisions.
