Taguchi explained that robust design is an engineering methodology for optimising the product and process conditions which are minimally sensitive to the various causes of variation and which produce a high-quality product with low development and manufacturing costs. The Taguchi method is one of the applications employed so that the significance of the factor, or multiple factors, that affect the particular process’s performance can be statistically determined. This talk briefly introduce on the advantages of employing Taguchi method and who can benefit from this technique. Besides that, speaker will introduce basic application of Taguchi method in research field and industry.


Associate Prof. Dr. Khairur Rijal Jamaludin has a Ph. D in Manufacturing Engineering from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in 2009, MSc in Advance Mechanical Engineering from University of Warwick, United Kingdom in 1998 and Bachelor degree from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 1996.

After graduation with Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering, he worked with Proton, a National carmaker in Malaysia, a place where he gained his Industrial Engineering experiences. In Proton, he was in charged at the Engine & Transmission Department. In his department, he was responsible for the plant capacity upgrading and setting up a new production line for new engine models.  He has been appointed as the academic member of staff in UTM since 1997.

He has published many research articles in International Journals in the field of Quality Engineering using Taguchi method for optimizing metal injection molding processes. He and his team is actively involved with industry research as well as fundamental research particularly related with Taguchi method and Mahalanobis Taguchi System.

With the consent and encouragement given by the family of the late Dr. Genichi Taguchi, he and his team have founded a Genichi Taguchi Centre for Quality and Sustainability in UTM.
