The judicious selection of a logical sequence of good experimental designs leads to a useful model that can produce an optimized process for a cost-effective product that will pay for itself over its lifetime.
Since Taguchi's experimental design has the capacity to be carried out in an industrial scale and it is cost-effective, the execution of this project by using the proposed method can be the key to the project's success," she underlined.

A fourth experimental design was used to compare four backing options: (1) no backing, (2) 2-mm-thick aspen veneer, (3) melamine-impregnated paper, and (4) foil (FoilSpec from CDM paper-based foil).
The bottom line is that experimental design can be a highly useful methodological approach for needed research on the consumer interest.
Instead of being bound by rigid construct categories as offered in experimental designs, participants are unrestricted in their discussions and opinions about products.
They develop very detailed experimental design instructions that are submitted to a fictitious bench technologist who supposedly actually performs the testing according to those experimental designs.
