Sensitivity of Injection Mold Filling Analyses to Variations in Input Parameters 900156
Mold filling analyses for mold design, and design of experiments, either classical or as taught by Taguchi are revolutionizing the way we are doing business. In this paper we use the DOE technique to evaluate the effects of 12 variables on the predictions of mold filling analyses. These effects are for our purposes the errors caused in prediction by inaccuracies in parameter measurement. The efficient use of the experimenter's time is guided by the results of these studies.
