Article Abstract

[This abstract is based on the author's abstract.] Well-designed statistical techniques can improve the quality of a manufacturing process by increasing knowledge of the underlying process. A case study of viscose fiber production illustrates how results from a simple fractional factorial experiment improve fiber strength and elongation. Also investigated is the relationship between strength and thickness of the fiber.
