3 – The product plan

The plans produced are original Taguchi. They cross the test matrices of the main factors with the noises to set up a plan of experiments which will make it possible to study the variability of the results according to these uncontrollable factors. Introduction...

4 – The loss function of Taguchi

The loss function of Taguchi is the second part of philosophy. It makes the link between the technique and the cost of quality, allowing to define the tolerances of a system.. Introduction The loss function is the initial idea of Taguchi’s robust design....
