Taguchi’s Approach to Quality Improvement
Since 1982 the so-called Taguchi method for off-line quality control has attracted the attention of many engineers and statisticians all over the world. Many successful applications were reported and high quality products were developed at low cost. At the same time many statisticians expressed some concerns about the methods for design of experiments and data analysis used by Taguchi. This initiated research aimed at integrating the Taguchi’s engineering ideas with well-established statistical methodology. This process is still going on and many debates on Taguchi method can be found in the specialized engineering and statistical journals.
