Since defects can be defined as the failure of a product or a process to conform to requirements, the importance of designing those requirements or specifications is clear. The fact is, properly designed specifications can reduce DPMO.
Robust Design method, also called Taguchi Method, improves engineering productivity by considering the noise factors and cost of failure to ensure customer satisfaction.
This case study illustrates the use of the Taguchi Method to develop a communication receiver product.
A financial evaluation method should be easy to communicate and outsource to project teams. An acceptable method plausible estimations, or even relative statements, that can be used for decision making. Taguchi’s Loss Function fits this criteria.
