Program Title:

Taguchi Method for Continuous and Quality Improvement Practitioners

Taguchi methods were developed to optimize processes and improve product quality. A defining approach in the Taguchi Methodology is the Robust Design wherein the thrusts are to address the noise factors in a process or product, and, costs of failure in order to ensure customer satisfaction. The methodology also introduces a technique for designing and performing experiments without having to tediously and uneconomically run the full experimental design process.The approach has gained appreciation from various industries such as manufacturing, engineering, biotechnology, marketing, services and advertising.
Course Overview:

This seminar covers the fundamentals required in optimizing processes through the Taguchi methodology. It is expected that at the end of the training course, the participants will be able to:

✔ Articulate the basics of Taguchi approach and robust design.
✔ Apply the Taguchi methods strategies in optimizing process or product design.
✔ Design and conduct experiments utilizing Taguchi methods.

This is considered as an advance course of Design of Experiments (DOE), thus it is ideal that one complete or is knowledgeable already, on DOE. This course shall cover the following topics:

✔ Review of Design Of Experiments Concepts and Process.
✔ Robust Design and Taguchi Loss Function.
✔ Optimization Problems: Dynamin and Static Problems.
✔ Experimentation using Taguchi Methods.
✔ Simulation Exercises on Taguchi Methods.
✔ Using Minitab in Conducting Taguchi Experiments.

This course is ideal for Six Sigma practitioners, product and process design engineers, manufacturing engineers, quality managers /engineers, testing and development engineers.
