From the Back Cover
"Robust Engineering produces parts that avoid failure." - John F. Elter, Vice President and Chief Engineer, Office Products Division, Xerox Corporation. "Toyota had incorporated Robust Engineering into its product development processes and it has become the daily norm for Toyota engineers." - Kenzo Euno, President, Ueno Design Institute, Japan. "Through the use of Tagushi's Robust Engineering approach at ITT Industries, our products truly are 'Engineered for Life.'" - Richard s. Ullman, Vice President, ITT Defense & Electronics. Robust Engineering using Taguchi Methods is not some mysterious Eastern way. It's a clockwork-simple program for creating outstanding new products. Xerox used Robust Engineering to prestidigitate its high-end digital office imaging system three years faster than its less complicated predecessor. Xerox's new DC265 has already grabbed a 70% market share. This amazing casebook is your chance to see other examples of Robust Engineering at work. Sit in at Ford and Nissan...easvesdrop at NASA, Xerox, 3M, Minolta...and answer your invitation from ITT, Goldstar, Sampo Kaguki, and Fumakilla. You'll see Robust Engineering used to: Anticipate customer cravings; Glide through design stages error-free; Spot design flaws before prototype; Eliminate manufacturing defects; Prevent high prices - and other things customers don't want; And bring out better products faster. Plus, here's your chance to learn what not to do by watching business giants stumble, as they complicate what should be a simple process.

the book should be renamed "Case Studies of Taguchi Method" and the "authors" should be renamed as "editors"
it also does not telll you the method & its statistical basis, its strength & weakness compared with other methods, its assumptions and so forth. In addition, it lacks a biblography. Overall, we are just supposed to take a leap of faith. The book feels like "informercial"
