Improvement of Process Capability Through Neural Networks and Robust Design: A Case Study
Summary: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.] A method integrating neural network and robust design methods is proposed for improving process capability by optimizing multiple characteristics. Optimum parameter settings are obtained by using the neural network to provide a nonlinear relationship between process parameters and corresponding responses, thereby ensuring efficient process control. The method is demonstrated in a polymerization process in a silicon-filter manufacturing facility.
