Designing a high-quality door sealing system at low cost is an economic and technological engineering challenge. Robust design is a systematic and efficient technique to meet this challenge of design optimization for performance, quality, and cost. This technique, also called parameter design, focuses on making product and process designs insensitive (i.e. robust) to hard-to-control variations called noise factors. In this paper, we illustrate and apply the principles of robust design using a response model approach to a door sealing system design problem where vehicle interior sound is the primary response being studied.
The Appendix contains a glossary of all italicized words for reference.
