||MANUFACTURING PROCESS DESIGN AND OPTIMIZATION
Author: Robert F. Rhyder
Description: This work presents the concepts of process design, problem identification, problem-solving and process optimization. It provides the basic tools needed to increase the consistency and profitability of manufacturing options, stressing the paradigms of improvement and emphasizing the hands-on use of tools furnished. The book introduces basic experimental design principles and avoids complicated statistical formulae.
Table of Content: Manufacturing process design; process principles; process paths; optimizing process design; Basic improvement Techniques; problem identification; basic problem solving; SPC review; complex process control. Design of experiments: inputs and outputs; control factors; experimental arrays; control factor interactions; orthogonal arrays; full factorial arrays; fractional factorial arrays; response analysis; minimizing variation. Appendix: experimental arrays and response tables.
