A clear, simple and essentially non-mathematical presentation, this practical guide introduces you to the basic concepts, techniques and applications of the renowned Taguchi approach. A Primer on the Taguchi Method introduces the fundamental concepts of Taguchi experimental design and shows engineers how to design, analyze, and interpret experiments using the Taguchi approach for a wide range of common products and processes. Written for manufacturing and production engineers, as well as design engineers and managers, this book explains the most practical ways to apply the Taguchi approach. The Taguchi approach to quality: the power of the Taguchi approach shows how it can be applied to an array of products from automobiles to computers. Learn the extraordinary benefits of building quality into the design, the heart of the Taguchi technique. Numerous real-world examples will help you see how the Taguchi Method works in a variety of manufacturing applications. For those who need a more rigorous statistical treatment, the book's working appendices provide full mathematical details on orthogonal arrays, triangular tables and linear graphs, plus fully worked solutions to problems presented in the example case studies.
