DOE: Robust Design

  • Theodore T. Allen
Chapter

Abstract

In Chapt.  4, it is claimed that perhaps the majority of quality problems are caused by variation in quality characteristics. The evidence is that typically only a small fraction of units fail to conform to specifications. If characteristic values were consistent, then either 100% of units would conform or 0%. Robust design methods seek to reduce the effects of input variation on a system’s outputs to improve quality.
