  1. Response Surface Methods (RSM) for Peak Process Performance at the Most Robust Operating Conditions

    October 2007

    This article starts with the basics on RSM before introducing two enhancements that focus on robust operating conditions: Modeling the process variance as a function of the input factors and Propagation of error(POE) transmitted from input factor variation. It discusses how to find the find the flats high plateaus for maximum yield and broad valleys that minimize defects.
