(a) Variance R e d u c t i o n USE (a) Variance R e d u c t i o n : USE Factor-Effect Plot for S/N Ratio : Select ‘dominant’ Control Factor (and their Levels) such that “variance” is minimized Taguchi Method Variance R e d u c t i o n Factor Effects 1 st Priority : Variance R e d u c t i o n 2 nd Priority : Factor Effects Symbols :   A1C3D2 A1 A2 A3 B1 B2 B3 C1 C2 C3 D1 D2 D3 S / N RATIO  Neutral Factor (b) “USE (b) “put” the “mean-on-target” : USE Factor-Effect Plot for Mean : Select one of the ‘neutral’ Control Factors as the “adjustment factor” A1C3D2 A1 A2 A3 B1 B2 B3 C1 C2 C3 D1 D2 D3 Mean  Adjustment Factor

S/N Ratio (Objective Function) Taguchi methods are experimental statistical methods to optimize a given process technology with respect to an objective function defined as Taguchi Method Variance R e d u c t i o n 1 st Priority : Variance R e d u c t i o n Symbols :    = ----------------- = -----------------  useful  Harmful Mean Square Variance The Ideal Value of the S/N Ratio is  (infinity). Since the ideal value of the Ratio is  (infinity),  the primary importance is shifted to “reduction in Variance” to 0 (zero) secondary  making “improving mean” a secondary objective (as in conventional approach)

NoIsE (a) Variance is, in fact, reduced in presence of NoIsE “ROBUST” and thus the product/process becomes “ROBUST” (b) Identify an “adjustment factor” that has little or no effect on the variance but has a large effect on the mean  use the ‘adjustment factor’ to “put” the “mean-on-target” Taguchi Method Variance R e d u c t i o n and 1 st Priority : Variance R e d u c t i o n and “put” the “mean-on-target” Symbols :  
