TAGUCHI L8 EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN MATRIX

1. This Template has been designed to study Seven(7) Control Factors


(The Inner Array) & Two Noise Factors(The Outer Array), with Eight Treatment Comb
Measurements. The technique used is Taguchi L 8 Matrix.

2. The Effects studied are "The Mean Response"; "The S/N Ratio(Smaller is the Bett
Deviation"s".

3. S/N Ratio is Called Signal to Noise Ratio.

4. Once the Experimental Factors to be studied (The Control Factor and The Noise F

5. The results are the "Mean Response" Effects for all seven factors at the High leve

7. The 3D Bar Graph for "Mean Response" Effects studies the Significant Factors.

8. The Bar Graph for "S/N" ratio also studies the Significant Factors.

9. The Analysis of Noise factors is done separately.
