Taguchi's robust design methodology has focused only on a single performance characteristic or response, but the quality of most products is seldom defined by a characteristic, and is rather the composite of a family of characteristics which are often interrelated and nearly always measured in a variety of units. The multiple performance characteristics problem is how to compromise the conflicts among the selected levels of the design parameters for each individual performance characteristic. In this paper, the modified desirability function using SN ratio which can be optimized by univariate technique is proposed and a parameter design procedure to achieve the best balance among several different response variables is developed We reanalyze two existing case studies by the proposed method and compare these results with ones by the sum of SN ratios and the expected weighted loss.
