In this course, the Taguchi method to Design of Experiments is examined. Differences and similarities between the Taguchi method and classical method for Design of Experiments used in manufacturing are discussed. Examples and case studies are presented in an understandable and practical manner.

Participants will gain an understanding of the Taguchi method to Design of Experiments and will know how to set up and conduct an experiment.
