I like this book because it gives a very good introduction into the concepts of noise- and control-factors. It treats the concept of "energy transformation" good, which is important to find the appropriate Ideal Function for your product.The examples are quite nice and most of them are illustrated by the p-diagram (parameter diagram). Unfortunately, examples are mainly form mechanical engineering. For me this is no drawback. Others may want to have a look on dedicated case studies from their field.To my taste the formulas presented appear a bit uglier than they really are.If you want to learn, how and why to use Taguchi's method, this book is an excellent tool for self-learning.
This book is quite readable, considering the topic, and does an excellent job of explaining the high level strategies of Dr. Taguchi's approach to optimization and experimentation. It also covers tactical issues like how to determine your ideal function and noise strategies.I've had several classes on this subject but found that the book helped clarify some of the finer aspects of the strategy and helped explain why the strategy should work. (e.g particularly the strategy for dealing with interactions).This book would not be sufficient to teach most people Robust Engineering, but it is a great reference.
The book is a good overview of Taguchi's methods with a few very good examples.
