Name: ______________________________________________ Date of lab: ______________________ Section number: M E 345._______ Lab 4 Precalculations – Individual Portion Experimental Design: Taguchi Design and RSM Precalculations Score (for instructor or TA use only): _____ / 20 1. For the catapult used in this lab, construct a full orthogonal Taguchi design array ( do not confuse with a full factorial array ) that has 3 levels and 3 parameters ( a , b , and c ), with each level of each parameter tested 3 times. The parameters and levels are defined in the introduction to this lab. Note : Parameter c uses levels 1, 3, and 4 , so make sure you use the correct level numbers. Construct your array on the left side of the space below. Full orthogonal array, 3 levels, 3 parameters 3 times Fractional array, 3 levels, 3 parameters 2 times 2. Similarly, construct a shorter fractional Taguchi design array that still has 3 levels and 3 parameters, but each level of each parameter is tested only 2 rather than 3 times. Again, be sure to use the correct level numbers for parameter c . Construct your array on the right side of the space above. 3. On your shorter design array above, indicate (by highlighting, circling, or some other mark) which runs required for the short array are different (extra) compared to the full orthogonal array. 4. Duplicate (or make a copy of) both of your above design arrays. You will hand in the originals to the TA, but you need to keep the copies or duplicates in order to proceed with the lab experiment.
