Phadke was trained in robust design techniques by Genichi Taguchi, the mastermind behind Japanese quality manufacturing technologies and the father of Japanese quality control. Taguchi's approach is currently under consideration to be adopted as a student protocol with the US government. The foreword is written by Taguchi.
This book offers a complete blueprint for structuring projects. It will help you achieve rapid completion with high engineering productivity during the research and development phase of your project to ensure that high quality products can be made quickly and at the lowest possible cost. Orthogonal arrays and how to construct them, computer-aided robust design techniques, and dynamic systems design methods are covered.
