Abstract: Today|s manufacturing environment is driven by competition like never before. Customers are demanding total solution to their needs, products of best quality at low prices. In turn, organisations are aiming for improvement in productivity of quality components. Quality and productivity improvement are more effective when they are integral part of the product and process development cycle. Companies world over are developing quality management systems like ISO 9001:2000 and investing in total quality. One of the critical requirements for the ISO 9001:2000 is having adequate control over process parameters and use of optimal conditions in machining operations. With this aim, optimisation of process parameters in grinding are done in different dimensions and perspectives and discussed in this paper.

Keywords: grinding; process parameters; Taguchi methods; design of experiments; DOE; machining optimisation.
