SBT System Behavior Testing  

  • Method to test if Software (and Functional System) behaves as intended during Development and/or Validation.
  • Intention is to define the fewest number of tests with the most amount of coverage.
  • Look further than just the tests we can think of or things that have failed in the past.
  • Full coverage of all 2-Factor Interactions, including unusual (but possible) combinations.
  • Also has the benefit of identifying Test Cases where Behavior is unknown … allows team to consider and define Expected Behavior and to verify understanding of Functional Coupling.

 Topics:

1. Introduction to SBT                      

2. Orthogonal Arrays for SBT              

3. How to generate multi-level columns in Orthogonal Array              

4. Exercise                                           

MTS Mahalanobis Taguchi System

MTS is to optimize a diagnosis system where two types of error exists.  Two types of error are “False Positive” and “False Negative”.

Applications include:

  • Medical Diagnosis
  • Fire Detection System
  • Complex System Monitoring
  • End of Line Inspection System
  • Manufacturing Process Monitoring
  • Etc.

Topics:

1.     Introduction to MTS      

2.     Exercise                       

T-Method

T-Method is a modeling technique to predict a response.

 Applications include:

  • Prediction of Consumer Repost Rating for Automotive Handling Quality
  • Prediction of J. D. Power Score
  • Prediction of Winning Percentage for MLB Teams and Identification of Critical Variables

Topics:

1.     Introduction to T-Method              

2.     Exercise   

Who Should Attend:

  • DFSS Green Belts/BlackBelts/Master Black Belts
  • Product Development Engineers
  • Engineering Management
  • Software System Engineers
  • Software System Test Engineers
  • Engineers working on Diagnostic System
  • Marketing

Prerequisites:  Basic Math Skills

 Learning Objectives:

SBT System Behavior Testing

  • Understand how to identify test scenarios such that hard-to-detect failure modes and be detected, if they exist. 
  • Learn how to analyze and interpret the test results.
  • Learn how iterations can be executed until all failure modes are detected.

 MTS Mahalanobis Taguchi System 

  • Learn how to identify “Normal Group” and “Abnormal Group”
  • Learn strategy to identify variables to discriminate“Normal” and “Abnormal”
  • Learn approaches to improve the discrimination power.

 T-Method     

  • Learn how to develop a model equation to predict the true value of response such as Consumer Report Score, JD Power Rating, NFL Quarterback Rating, Manufacturing Yield, etc.
