Research Grants & Projects

Quantification of Kansei
Cooperative Research
Project Year: Apr 2002 - Today
Kansei is defined as the human ability to translate stimulus into impression. The structural model of Kansei evaluation is built by considering some individual differences. Kansei quality is improved using the model.
Applications of Design of Experiments in Computer Aided Engineering
Project Year: Apr 2003 - Today
The calibration and the regulation fitting in the CAE working may be an obstacle to progress the reduction of lead-time. The efficient CAE working is proposed by utilizing the design of experiment.
Consumer Trend on Quality Recognition
Project Year: Apr 2005 - Today
It is hypothesized that quality elements recognized as the one-dimensional quality have high degree of importance on purchase. The hypothesis is verified in general, then customer trend is examined by analyzing its mechanism.
Statistical Process Control
Cooperative Research
Project Year: Apr 2005 - Today
Process control system to get quality of manufacture based on the statistical quality control, for example, control charts and process capability, is studied. A recent research is the integration of SPC and APC.
