    Hi, anyone knows about DOE in paint industries? Is there any different or precautions we need to take?

    I don't know anything specific, but suspect that you could run into mixture designs if you experiment with the paint formulation.

    Mixture experiments may definitely help.
    Also remember that many of the important Customer related characteristics are difficult to measure (such as color and adhesion) so solid Measurement Systems analyses should be employed

    I agree with the above with regards to mixture experiments - by which i assume you mean ingredients within the mixture at different levels.

    You could also look into the process of mixing - again assuming it isnt a manual operation - your processes will have several inputs such as raw material viscosity, pressures, mix times etc

    It's a little more complex than might at first be imagined. The dispersion of the pigment is often highly dependent on the millbase composition - I'd suggest that you restrict the designed experiment to the millbase portion first.
