Process Optimization for the Improvement of Brake Noise: A Case Study

Quality Engineering vol. 18 issue 2 - April 2006

Abstract: [This abstract is based on the authors' abstract.]A study demonstrates how the problem of brake noise is improved by using Taguchi techniques and designed experiments to optimize the manufacturing processes for brake discs and pads. Signal to noise ratios of key output responses were maximized to optimize the mean and variation. The influence percentage was obtained using analysis of variance, and fine adjustment of the mean was performed using designed experiments and regression analysis.
