With today’s software and problem solving methodologies, there is no reason to be teaching or using Taguchi methods. They have a range of limitations and assumptions, and better options exist and are easy to use. Watch this video to learn more! Avoid falling for the sales pitch for yesterdays tools. No reason to limit your options and your learning.

Thank you for your comments, Perry. Can you recommend a resource to become more familiar with the Box Methodologies you recommend?
Perry Parendo says
David, the best resource book is by George Box. It is called “Statistics for Experimenters.” It come from a Chemical Engineering perspective, but the tools are right from the source. I have some Youtube videos that give a high level view of tools. Find them on my Perry’s Solutions channel. If you have further questions, feel free to email me.
