STAVEX is a user-friendly PC software system that was originally developed by the Mathematical Applications Group in the former Ciba-Geigy company. It runs under Windows. STAVEX is designed as an Expert system which guides the user through the entire optimization process, i.e. from the initial design to the final data analysis, completely independent of a statistician. Today, STAVEX is supported and extended by AICOS Technologies AG.
The course provides, on the one hand, basic knowledge to better understand the principles of statistical designs and, on the other hand, shows the operation of STAVEX using practical examples. The course is offered in two parts, A and B, each of which lasts two days. The two parts can be taken separately. In Part B, the participants have the opportunity to evaluate their own data.
