Fundamentals of Design of Experiments for Automotive Engineering Volume I



Authors Abstract

In a world where innovation and sustainability are paramount, Fundamentals of Design of Experiments for Automotive Engineering: Volume I serves as a definitive guide to harnessing the power of statistical thinking in product development. As first of four volumes in SAE International’s DOE for Product Reliability Growth series, this book presents a practical, application-focused approach by emphasizing DOE as a dynamic tool for automotive engineers. It showcases real-world examples, demonstrating how process improvements and system optimizations can significantly enhance product reliability.

The author, Young Chiang, leverages extensive product development expertise to present a comprehensive process that ensures product performance and reliability throughout its entire lifecycle. Whether individuals are involved in research, design, testing, manufacturing, or marketing, this essential reference equips them with the skills needed to excel in their respective roles.

This book explores the potential of Reliability and Sustainability with DOE, featuring the following topics:

- Fundamental prerequisites for deploying DOE: Product reliability processes, measurement uncertainty, failure analysis, and design for reliability.

- Full factorial design 2K: A system identification tool for relating objectives to factors and understanding main and interactive effects.

- Fractional factorial design 2RK-P: Ideal for identifying main effects and 2-factor interactions.

- General fractional factorial design LK-P: Systematically identification of significant inputs and analysis of nonlinear behaviors.

- Composite designs as response surface methods: Resolving interactions and optimizing decisions with limited factors.

- Adapting to practical challenges with “short” DOE: Leveraging optimization schemes like D-optimality, and A-optimality for optimal results.

Readers are encouraged not to allow product failures to hinder progress but to embrace the "statistical thinking" embedded in DOE. This book can illuminate the path to designing products that stand the test of time, resulting in satisfied customers and thriving businesses.
