Abstract

Despite many advances in the field of casting technologies the foundry industry still incurs significant lossesdue to the cost of scrap and rework with adverse effects on profitability and the environment. Approachessuch as Six Sigma, DoE, FMEA are used by foundries to address quality issues. Howeve...
