Quality Management & Training

TAGUCHI TECHNIQUE AND DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS

This one day Taguchi training course provides a simple introduction to the methodology of Design of Experiments (DOE) in a manufacturing context.  The course focuses on the design and improvement of products and processes.  No prior knowledge of DOE is necessary and only basic mathematical skills are required.  The content is delivered through a series of presentations and participant activities.  The Taguchi approach to design, development and improvement was developed by the Japanese quality consultant Dr. Genichi Taguchi during the 1980s.
