  • Method-comparison studies with Taguchi and response surface
           methodologies for chemical process optimisation: a case study
    • Authors: Vishal Singh Patyal, Sachin Modgil, Maddulety Koilakuntla
      Pages: 1 - 24
      Abstract: This paper presents the findings of an experimental investigation conducted for understanding the effect of pH and temperature on three response variables viz. 'loss on ignition' (LoI), zinc oxide (ZnO) and borate (B<SUB align="right">2O<SUB align="right">3) in the output of a chemical process. The Taguchi technique and response surface methodology (RSM) have been used to accomplish the objectives of the study. The L4 orthogonal array with two replications for the Taguchi technique and central composite design (CCD) with two replications for response surface were used for conducting the experiments. The analysis was performed using the Taguchi technique, RSM with general linear model (ANOVA) revealed that temperature and its quadratic effect produced significant impact in achieving target values of LoI and B<SUB align="right">2O<SUB align="right">3 content. Further, the data analysis reported that effect of pH on three response variables (LoI, ZnO, B<SUB align="right">2O<SUB align="right">3) was insignificant in nature, Also, ZnO content was not significant either with pH or temperature.

  • Mahalanobis-Taguchi system for multiclass classification of steel
           plates fault
    • Authors: Adebolaji A. Jobi-Taiwo, Elizabeth A. Cudney
      Pages: 25 - 39
      Abstract: Fault identification is fundamental to condition monitoring. An identification method for a single fault is unbalanced as there are usually multiple possible failures involved when considering a system. This paper presents a method for applying the Mahalanobis-Taguchi system (MTS) in a multiclass problem space. MTS provides a means of extracting information in a multidimensional system and integrating information from different variables into a single composite metric. MTS is used to construct reference scales by creating individual measurement scales for each class. These measurement scales are based on the Mahalanobis distance (MD) for each sample. Orthogonal arrays (OA) and signal-to-noise (SN) ratio are used to identify variables of importance and these variables are used to construct a reduced model of the measurement scale. By reducing the dimensionality of the problem, less variables are tracked which reduces the cost of the system monitoring. A classification threshold based on 1.5 sigma shift from the centre of the measurement scales was utilised for each class. In order to evaluate the effectiveness of the method presented, a case on multiple fault class of manufacturing a steel plate is studied, and results indicate the practicality of the method in industrial applications.

  • Non-parametric change-point approach for monitoring shifts in
           process location and variability
    • Authors: Rotimi Felix Afolabi, Peter A. Osanaiye, Onoja Matthew Akpa
      Pages: 40 - 56
      Abstract: In statistical process control, detecting if the process is in control and the position of shift in an out-of-control process are critical research problems. If the normality assumption is satisfied, work has advanced in detecting shifts in mean and/or variance. However, the normality assumption is often not satisfied in many real life situations. We suggest a non-parametric Lepage-type change-point (LCP) control chart for jointly detecting process shifts in mean and variance, under non-normality. A comparison between our proposed method and a generalised likelihood ratio (GLR)-based method was made. Process data were simulated following normal and Laplace distributions. The performances of LCP and GLR were assessed and presented, using evaluated average run lengths, under the distributions considered. The LCP competed favourably with the GLR in a normal distribution. However, LCP outperformed GLR under the heavy-tailed distribution considered. We recommend the new approach for short-run situations where the underlying distributions are usually unknown.

  • Multi-response optimisation using Grey relational analysis and Shainin
           design of experiments
    • Authors: Rotimi Felix Afolabi, Peter A. Osanaiye, Onoja Matthew Akpa
      Pages: 57 - 78
      Abstract: Several approaches are used for simultaneous optimisation of multi-response experiments to predict the significant parameters in the area of design of experiments. Researchers focus more on the mathematical models and numerical analysis to find the significant factors contribute to the problem statement both in problem solving approaches and process characterisation. Shainin proposed a set of tools and techniques to improve the quality both offline and online quality assurance. The purpose of using all these set of tools is to find the vital few dominant cause called red X and second dominant cause called pink X which affects the manufacturing system or quality assurance. This paper deals with the application of Grey relational analysis to combine the multi responses into a single response which affects the problem statement and predicts the optimum parameter levels for confirmation experiment. A case study is illustrated to explain the steps and discussed in detail. This shows the application feasibility of the Grey relational analysis with Shainin design of experiments in combination to improve the quality characteristics and process characterisation.

  • Quality Insights: Learning, forgetting, and relearning quality: a
           half-life learning curve modelling approach
    • Authors: Rotimi Felix Afolabi, Peter A. Osanaiye, Onoja Matthew Akpa
      Pages: 79 - 100
      Abstract: Learning curves are used extensively in business, science, technology, engineering, and industry to predict system performance over time. Although most of the early developments and applications were in the area of production engineering, general applications can be found in all areas of applications. Quality engineering and technology, in particular, offer a fertile area for the application of learning curves. This paper applies the concept of half-life of learning curves to quality management. This is useful for predictive measures of quality system performance. Half-life is the amount of time it takes for a quantity to diminish to half of its original size through natural processes. The approach of half-life computation provides additional decision tool for researchers and practitioners in quality engineering and technology. Derivation of the half-life equations of learning curves can reveal more about the properties of the various curves, with respect to the unique life-cycle property of product quality.
