An introduction to mixture design

Many commercially available chemical products are manufactured and sold as mixtures. The word mixture in this context designates a blend in which all ingredients sum to 100%. Examples of such mixtures are pharmaceuticals, gasolines, plastics, paints, and many types of food and dairy products. As shown in this webinar, Mixture design is a special topic within DOE, and many of the basic DOE concepts and modelling principles are applicable for design of mixtures. However, there are also some fundamental differences.
