This course will introduce the Taguchi design improvement technique. Attendees will gain hands-on application experience to design robust products and processes as well as solve production problems by reducing performance variations. The goal of this course is to prepare attendees for immediate performance improvement and variation reduction applications. Attendees will leave this course knowing how to plan and lay out experiments, as well as interpret and analyze their results.
Each participant will receive a copy of the textbook, Design of Experiments Using the Taguchi Approach, by Ranjit Roy and a working demo of Qualitek-4 software for design and analysis of Taguchi experiments.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptops, although all course materials will be displayed on an LCD projector.

- Provide an overview of Taguchi concepts
- Measure cost of quality by Loss Function
- Describe the basic concepts in experimental design
- Explain how to project overall evaluation criteria
- Demonstrate a basic analysis and strategy for experimentation
- Describe Combination Design Strategy for Robust Design
- Provide a computation of cost and loss function
