Data Analytics for Poultry and Swine Industries – Level 2

Level II:

Experimentation for Problem Solving and Innovation

Next edition: February 2022

About this course

The swine and poultry industries generate enormous amount of information. This could be used to register historical series or as a data base to generate information to improve the results and plan future developments.

In this course we emphasize the importance of design of experiments because it is known that observational data is not enough. Determining causality with accuracy by experimenting is essential when solving problems, and choosing options to improve in a particular topic.  We cover experimental designs with evaluation of one factor at the time, factorial experiments, and split-plot designs.

The course uses practical examples from the industry and real data shared by some of the main integrations of the world. Utilizes JMP and R and Tableau software with poultry and swine examples. Opens the opportunity for customized data analytic projects.  It is a blended course, with self-paced interactive modules and virtual sessions with NCSU professors and experts invited from different companies.  After completion and evaluation, the Course offers an Extension Certificate in Data Analytics for Poultry and Swine Industries.

The program includes the following topics:

- Overview of analytics and potential benefits
- Software for data visualization and analytics
- Design of Experiments
- Designing experiments to test factors
- Screening Experiments
