With rapid advances in technology, use of automated data collection methods is on a steep rise. Situations that call for decision-making with voluminous datasets involving several variables are being encountered in an ever-increasing number of fields. Mahalanobis-Taguchi System (MTS) analysis provides an effective decision-making methodology in such situations. It is being successfully used by engineers in companies such as Nissan, Ford, Delphi, Xerox, and Yamaha, to name but a few.

This special issue invites submission of papers that could be state-of-the-art, new contributions, technical notes, review papers, or case studies in the area of Mahalanobis-Taguchi System analysis.
