Welcome

TOPIC: System Design using P-Diagrams
In the competitive industries of the current global economy, trial and error methods have been rightfully abandoned for more efficient forms of experimentation and development. Be that as it may, experimental methods often have conflicting results. In many cases, product systems are not understood. As such, it is often difficult to select the best variables for testing. P-Diagram’s offer a simple method for modeling a complex system using the foundation of an ideal function while differentiating variables into control factors and noise factors. The P-Diagram model can be applied to a multitude of systems. As part of this presentation, the construction of P-Diagrams will be presented along with case studies.
