Abstract : The use of mixed multilevel orthogonal arrays in robust design has gained popularity in quality improvement areas in recent years. We have investigated the use of genetic algorithms in the construction of such arrays. This paper addresses issues encountered in formulating the problem (such as encoding and representation), as well as the results of this application. We compare this technique with simulated annealing which we published previously.
