An important objective in process design in the wood-processing industry is to make the system robust – or insensitive – to sources of variability that cannot be entirely controlled once the system is in use. Experimental designs can be used to solve some of these problems. The first techniques were introduced in the 1980s by Genichi Taguchi, a Japanese engineer. The objective of this paper is to apply advanced methods for optimization of cutting conditions using a robust design in the wood-processing industry according to energy efficiency criteria. By showing some numerical simulation results, the effectiveness of the proposed model is illustrated.
