Abstract: In this modern digital age, software-based systems are becoming essential in everyone's life. During the industrial evolution, human society has experienced many industrial revolutions. Presently, the world is undergoing hi-tech industrial revolution with information technology, computer network and artificial intelligence as its main features. Mechatronics is also an emerging technology in the evolutionary process of modern engineering design. The role of mechatronics with effective real-time software called as software-based mechatronics system which is having high potential in a system development. In this, the ineffective parameter design may produce the severe consequences in the application field, even there is a chance of accidents. So, it is important to do a perfect process parameter design in software-based mechatronics systems. Taguchi method of experimental design has widely used in industry for parameters design in achieving useful goals. This research outlines the Taguchi optimisation methodology using four factor L9 orthogonal array for the parameters design in a software-based electro-pneumatic system.
