Automotive Applications Using A Robust Design Approach 1999-01-1029

Robust design approaches can be applied to create designs that are insensitive to input variation so that they work almost all the time, regardless of manufacturing and operating conditions. In this paper, the performances of two automotive designs - a steering column and a deck lid system - are significantly improved by using the robust design approach through mathematical optimization. For each design, calculation of the performance indices, the formulation, and results of the optimization problem are presented.
