Motivation for Robust Design DayThe principle benefits of robust design are widely accepted. Robustly designed products, devices, and production equipment are less sensitive to variation leading to accelerated time-to-market, reduced ramp-up costs, more consistent product quality as well as improved customer satisfaction.
At the same time, there is still a large gap between robust design in theory and in practice. In spite of well-described development processes and considerable effort for quality initiatives, many companies still experience immense challenges to efficiently account for variation of manufacturing/ assembly processes, material properties, loading conditions, ambient use conditions and time related changes such as creep and wear.
DTU’s annual Robust Design Day therefore aims at bringing together researchers and practioners focusing on applied Robust Design and Variation Management in Design and Production. The objective is a regular platform for discussions and a fruitful knowledge exchange on experiences, solutions and challenges faced.
