A Game Theory Application in Robust Design

Summary: [This abstract is based on the author's abstract.]Robust designs such as the Taguchi methods have revolutionized the development of new processes and products. However, critics have pointed out that certain techniques among these designs are inefficient and unnecessarily complicated, particularly signal-to-noise ratios that play an important role in measuring robustness of product and process design. The selection of a robust design is demonstrated using an interactive two-person zero-sum game formulation of the S/N ratio analysis. The approach provides both the mean and the standard deviation corresponding to a design setting. Examples illustrate the method.
