Taguchi Certification for Experts
(4 Week Workshop)
program has been designed to provide a means for current practitioners
of Taguchi Methods to become certified by the American Supplier Institute
(ASI) in the use, applications, and facilitation of Robust Design and
Taguchi Methods. This will provide benefits to the organization by creating
and "in-house" Taguchi expert who is well versed in the broad
range of methods. This program consists of four 4-day workshops spread
over nine months. With respect to the class itself, it will be limited
in size to promote maximum one-on-one learning.

for Technology, Taguchi Methods for Manufacturing Process Control
and Pattern Recognition.
proficient on both ANOVA-TM and STN software.
upon, through experience, more than 60 "best-in-class" case
studies in Taguchi Methods and Robust Design.
the strengths and weaknesses of case studies, and be able to critique
a case study.
in-company experts in Taguchi Style Experimentation and Robust Design.
The prerequisite for embarking on this 16-day program is a basic knowledge
of Taguchi Methods, such as that acquired through ASIís workshops on
Taguchi Methods for Problem Solving or Robust Design.
attendee will bring an actual project/problem from their organization,
and consultation will be provided by Dr. Genichi Taguchi and Mr. Shin
Taguchi in setting up a case study. The project will be completed
by the en of the session with significant cost saving achieved for
attendee will receive state of the art software, books, and best-in-class
case studies to create an in-company Taguchi Research Library.
graduate will continue to receive copies of articles, case studies
and technical papers on Taguchi Methods and Robust Design.
graduate will automatically qualify for a 10% discount on all ASI
publications, software, symposia, and courses for a period of two
years from graduation.
graduate will be requested by ASI to present their case study at ASI
to present their case study at ASIís symposium as an example of best-in-class.
