While the principle benefits of robust design are widely accepted, there is still a large gap between robust design in theory and in practice. DTU’s annual Robust Design Day therefore aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners focusing on applied Robust Design and Variation Management in Design and Production. The objective is a regular platform for discussions and a fruitful knowledge exchange on experiences, solutions and challenges faced.
