The tool

What is it?

Quantisweb is a patented multi-objectives (targets) and multivariate Stochastic Approximation Optimization methodology and software which offers an alternative to traditional DOE methods; Expert Systems; Optimization, Simulation, Statistical software; Data Mining and last but not least “trial and error” to formulate or optimize a product recipe or a manufacturing process simultaneously.

  • Quantisweb determines the model (behavioural laws) of random systems with a minimal number of experiments.
  • Quantisweb generates an objective function (goal) using the desired product properties.
  • Quantisweb generates an optimal design (recipe) by optimizing the objective function and the model.

Concepts

Value Proposition

  • Validates user’s knowledge using Optimization as opposed to Predict outcome using Statistics.
  • Significantly reduces the number of experiments or simulations required to reach an optimal answer for a complex problem.
  • Handles critical and non-critical process variables and associated constraints simultaneously.
  • Optimizes products and processes simultaneously.
  • Reduces R&D and manufacturing costs, and time to market.
  • Eliminates the need for the user to know “advanced techniques” for “multi-factor” design of experiments analysis.
  • Generates a single response.

Uniqueness

  • Starts with the end in mind. Leads user to determine desired product and process specifications at the outset.
  • Handles product and process variables and constraints simultaneously.
  • Eliminates Statistical Analysis. Chooses design of experiments method on its own from an internal library.
  • Deals with large problems. Generates np+1 experimental values for any number of variables regardless of the number of levels for each variable.
  • Provides X-Y patterns. Generates behavioral laws, using experimental values and associated results of experiments.
  • Chooses optimization method on its own from an internal library and optimizes combination of variables to reach.
  • Indicates existence of variability as well as parametric limitations.

Assumptions

  • The statistical error is negligible or under control.
  • The application does not want to understand the phenomenon.
  • The application does not create perfect behavioral law models – only patterns.

Innovation

  • The way the application estimates the interaction of the X’s using a combination of parametric and/or nonparametric methods to generate Np+1 experimental values.
  • The way the application uses the Y’s measured from these experimental values to sequentially generate the behavioral laws based on the descending order of the importance of the Y’s.
  • The way the application generates a goal function that generalizes the loss function of Taguchi.
