The Taguchi Methods consist of a 3-pronged quality approach developed by the Japanese statistician Genichi Taguchi. The focus was on

  1. Better design ideas
  2. Rigorous testing of the design
  3. Reducing the impact of anything that would cause variation

His overall goal was to create a more robust product prior to full scale production. The Taguchi Methods were designed to deliver exactly what the customer wanted by reducing variation and lowering costs in the process.
