5.5.3. How do you optimize a process?
|When there are multiple responses, it is often impossible to simultaneously optimize each one - trade-offs must be made||In the multiple response case, finding process operating conditions that simultaneously maximize (or minimize, as desired) all the responses is quite difficult, and often impossible. Almost inevitably, the process engineer must make some trade-offs in order to find process operating conditions that are satisfactory for most (and hopefully all) the responses. In this subsection, we examine some effective ways to make these trade-offs.|
