Evolvable Designs of Experiments: Applications for Circuits (3527324240) cover image
Adopting a groundbreaking approach, the highly regarded author shows how to design methods for planning increasingly complex experiments.
He begins with a brief introduction to standard quality methods and the technology in standard electric circuits. The book then gives numerous examples of how to apply the proposed methodology in a series of real-life case studies. Although these case studies are taken from the printed circuit board industry, the methods are equally applicable to other fields of engineering.
