Some of the journals had listed academics on their editorial boards without their permission or even knowledge, sometimes in fields very different from their own. [O]ne of its journals ... accepted a paper written by a random text generator.

Experimental design can be used at the point of the greatest leverage to reduce design costs by speeding up the design process, reducing late engineering design changes, and reducing product material and labor complexity. Designed Experiments are also powerful tools to achieve manufacturing cost savings by minimizing process variation and reducing rework, scrap, and the need for inspection.
