16.881 – Robust System Design Homework #4 Matrix Experiments Using Orthogonal Arrays Due Date: Wednesday, June 17, 3:05, 4-149 Objectives: Reinforce material from Phadke chapter 3 with a practical exercise and place the material in the context of the system development process Encourage thinking about the relative importance of a few key factors in optimization by empirical methods Assignment 1. (90%) Form teams of four engineers to consider the parameter design of a paper helicopter. Your task is to design a helicopter that can transport a payload from seven feet above the ground (as measured from the bottom of the helicopter) to the ground in two seconds. Your company designs, manufactures, and operates these helicopters. Your company has contracted with a customer who will buy 100 “rides” in your helicopter over the life of the contract. For a time of exactly two seconds, they will pay you \$100, but they have specified a tolerance of ± 0.3 seconds and will reduce their payment according to a nominal-the best quality loss function.
