Abstract

Response surface methodology (RSM) is widely used for optimizing manufacturing processes and product designs. Most applications of RSM involve several response variables. In a typical RSM study, the experimenter will build an empirical model such as the second-order model to each response and use these models to determine settings on the design variables that produce optimal or at least acceptable values for the responses. In most multiple-response RSM problems, the experimenter fits a model to each response using ordinary least squares (OLS). This article illustrates another estimation technique useful in multiple-response RSM problems, seemingly unrelated regressions (SUR). This technique can be very useful when response variables in a multiple-response RSM problem are correlated. Essentially, SUR produces more precise estimates of the model parameters than OLS when responses are correlated. This improved precision of estimation can lead to a more precise estimate of the optimum operating conditions on the process.
