Taguchi Orthogonal Arrays Author: John M. Cimbala, Penn State University Latest revision: 07 February, 2008 Introduction There are options for creating Taguchi arrays for the design of experiments, depending on how many times you choose to test each level of each parameter. For example, consider an experiment with 3 parameters and 3 levels of each parameter ( P = 3 and L = 3), as discussed in a previous learning module. We showed two Taguchi arrays for this case: o a 6-run array for testing each level of each parameter twice o a 9-run array for testing each level of each parameter three times The 9-run array is more desirable (if cost and time permit) because for each level of any one parameter, all three levels of the other parameters are tested . Of course, either array here costs less to run than a full- factorial analysis, since the number of required runs for a full factorial analysis is N = L P = 3 3 = 27. We refer to a full Taguchi array as an
