THE COMPARISON OF SOLUTION METHODS FOR THE PROBLEM OF GIVING PRIORITY TO RESPONSES IN MULTIRESPONSE PROBLEM IN TAGUCHI METHOD
Authors: Semra Boran, Kasim Baynal
Abstract: In this study, the problem of giving priority to two or more quality chracteristics faced while applying Taguchi Method on multiresponse problems is studied. It was based upon Tong et al.(1997)'s approach on assignment of weights derived from individual experiences. Instead of prioritizing by personal judgments, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Analytic Network Process (ANP) methods were used to assign priorities of quality characteristics. Comparisons were made among the results obtained by AHP, ANP medhods and the those of the expert. A spesific automative product was taken as an example which were subjected to above comparisons.
Keywords: Taguchi Method, Multi-response problem, The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), The Analytic Network Process (ANP)
