A Nested Experiment Design for Gauge Gain in Steel Tube Manufacturing

Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]A case study in the steel industry investigates the phenomenon of gauge gain, whereby the gauge of a steel tube produced by cold working may be thicker than the gauge of the material from which it is made. A nested designed experiment, augmented by gauge R&R and regression studies, was used to identify which product factors have significant effect on the gauge gain.
