Quality Engineering and Taguchi Methods: A Perspective
MetadataShow full item record
Robust product design and parameter design - methods to develop products that will perform well regardless of changes in uncontrollable environmental conditions or that are insensitive to component variation - are key concepts in the work of Dr. Taguchi. We should encourage design and manufacturing engineers to apply these useful ideas. But in designing experiments and analyzing data - key aspects of the practical implementation - better and simpler methods are available and should be preferred over Taguchi's less intuitive and more cumbersome approaches.
