An Example from Engineering Design

Although our interest here is software design, a simpler yet realistic example from electrical circuit design may be very helpful in giving you insight into Taguchi Methods. This application shows the trade-off potential between the three stages of Taguchi design and also gives you insight into the increasing replacement of electronic circuits by software algorithms. Analog filters for radio and other signal processing have long since been replaced by digital (software-programmed) filters. Modern communication receivers are simply computer programs that tune to and receive signals on a chip-based computer. Similarly, the most advanced radio transmitters are computers that, rather than computing a number, prepare ...
