Computer simulations are widely used during product development. In particular, computer experiments are often conducted in order to optimize both product and process performance while respecting constraints that may be imposed. Several methods for achieving robust design in this context are described and compared with the aid of a simple example problem. The methods presented compare classical as well as modern approaches and introduce the idea of a ‘stochastic response’ to aid the search for robust solutions. Emphasis is placed on the efficiency of each method with respect to computational cost and the ability to formulate objectives that encapsulate the notion of robustness.
