Essay about Design And Analysis Of Computer Experiments
A company for medical devices was developing a particular technology for enabling smaller medical devices for launching a substrate development endeavor to be a section of a large-scale technology and product development effort. The development of the substrate consisted of a prediction of the stress that was caused by the welding process using laser to ensure the reliability of the product. For this Design for Six Sigma (DFFS) case study, design and analysis of computer experiments (DACE) was employed to account for the risks that were associated with welding using laser in a substrate for the process of electronic welding. DACE process was chosen to use computer simulations for stress and warp prediction of the specimen which has factor levels that are varying. Instead of making eight samples which are different, all work could now be replicated using a computer, thus saving money and time.
The DFFS project starts by establishing analytical parameters (Y’s) that are strongly related with the success of the project. The critical parameters are then made to flow down to controlled factors (X’s) and uncontrolled “noise” (n’s) which might affect the parameters that are critical to the project. Then, predictive optimization and engineering are employed to make sure that the expectations for critical parameters will be met over the scope of noise factors or used conditions. The process ends by making sure that expectations were met successfully.
