STATISTICAL DESIGN IN TIRE MANUFACTURING
R. AGGARWALA, M. LAMOUREUX AND M. POWOJOWSKI

Abstract. In the industrial production of automobile tires, the manufacturer requires its tires to be very uniform in order to provide a smooth, quiet ride for the automotive consumer. The design of the appropriate manufacturing technique leads to a problem in harmonic analysis, and to the design of a statistical experiment to accurately measure the harmonic components contributing to a measured force on the tire. We present the results of a PIMS Industrial Problem Solving Workshop which examined the problem, including the derivation of the harmonic problem, development of optimal statistical designs, and a number of useful Monte Carlo methods which were created.
