Comparison of current practice and the Taguchi approach planning) for Taguchi experiment designs, along with some general guidelines, are described in Chapter 8. Taguchi experiments are designed according to some strict rules. A set of orthogonal arrays (OAs) is used to design the experiments. A single OA may accommodate several experimental situations. Commonly used OAs are available for two-, three-, and four-level factors.

To see how the Taguchi technique is used for many factors, consider once again the process of determining the best recipe for a pound cake (Figure 3-4). The objective is to determine the right proportions of the five major ingredients—eggs, butter, milk, flour, and sugar, so that the recipe will produce the best cake most of the time (Figure 3-5). Based on the past experience of involved team members, the working ranges of these factors are established at the levels as shown in Figure 3-6. At this point, we face the following questions.

A 2 × 2 factorial experiment including two different glues at two application temperatures is planned. List at least three noise factors that may influence the outcome of the test. 3 Measurement of Quality THE QUALITY CHARACTERISTIC Every product is designed to perform some intended function. Some measurable characteristic, generally referred to as the quality characteristic, is used to express how well a product performs the function. Consider a light bulb; its quality can be measured in terms of its hours of life.
