Description

Experiments designed and carried out according to the Taguchi methodology are generally referred to as case studies. Perhaps they are called case studies to indicate that they are well planned experiments and not simply a few tests to investigate the effects of varying one or more factors at a time. The term case study may also be used to signify that such planned experiments have been fruitfully carried out, that the results have been analyzed to determine the optimum combination of the factors under study, and that tests to confirm the optimum conditions have been conducted. But what does a case study look like? What are the steps to be followed in completing a case study? This final chapter details the examples that were presented in the proceeding chapters.
