A Comparison of the Mahalanobis-Taguchi System to Standard Statistical Methods for Defect Detection
The Mahalanobis-Taguchi System is a diagnosis and forecasting method for multivariate data. Mahalanobis distance is a measure based on correlations between the variables and different patterns that can be identified and analyzed with respect to a base or reference group. This paper presents a comparison of the Mahalanobis-Taguchi System and a standard statistical technique for defect detection by identifying abnormalities. The objective of this research is to provide a method for defect detection with acceptable alpha (probability of type I) and beta (probability of type II) errors.
