In memory of the honorable
Dr. Genichi Taguchi (January 1, 1924 - June 2, 2012)
"Dr. Taguchi elevated the utility of the Design of Experiment (DOE) statistical technique which was originally introduced by the UK's Sir R. A Fisher in the 1920's. Taguchi's constant effort to make the DOE technique more effective by standardizing experiment designs and offering a method for handling influence of noise factors toward robust designs was readily adopted by quality professionals and industrial experimenters worldwide."
With his passing, the world lost another great innovator and contributor to quality.
My sentiments too Roy, thanks. Don Fitchett
