  • In this paper, we suggest a potential use of data compression measures, such as the Entropy, and the Huffman Coding, to assess the effects of noise factors on the reliability of tested systems. In particular, we extend the Taguchi method for robust design by computing the entropy of the percent contribution values of the noise factors. The new measures are computed already at the parameter-design stage, and together with the traditional S/N ratios enable the specification of a robust design… CONTINUE READING
