Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...One can find praise for Taguchi's Quality Engineering Handbook right at the beginning of the book, where several well-known authorities express their opinions—in fact, admiration. This reviewer totally concurs. It remains to praise and congratulate the authors and the publisher for their part in bringing out this great volume of more than 1,600 pages."
