About the book

One of the concerns of the Robust Project is the definition of the most relevant quality characteristics of a product and consequently the respective technical specifications, as well as the best levels of the factors (controllable variables) of the process. No less important is to guarantee, in later stages of the production cycle, capable processes, i.e., that reveal the aptitude to comply with these technical specifications. Several questions are asked when the definitions found in the design phase are to be realized in production. First, it will be necessary to ensure that the processes related to the various quality characteristics are stable (there are only common causes of variation). The monitoring of processes is the advisable way to verify this stability, achieving this aim through the application of the SPC (Statistical Process Control), using specific statistical techniques, the control charts.

This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in Robust Design Methods, featuring an easy-to-follow, vignette-based format that focuses on the most important evidence-based developments in this critically important area.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marijana Francetic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
