List at least three noise factors that may influence the outcome of the test. 3 Measurement of Quality THE QUALITY CHARACTERISTIC Every product is designed to perform some intended function. Some measurable characteristic, generally referred to as the quality characteristic, is used to express how well a product performs the function. Consider a light bulb; its quality can be measured in terms of its hours of life. 00 inch diameter shafts, the deviation from this target dimension may be a quality characteristic.

Repetition Each trial is repeated as planned before proceeding to the next trial run. The trial run sequence is selected in a random order. For example, given the trial sequence 2, 4, 3, and 1, three successive runs of trial 2 are made, followed by three runs of trial 4, and so on. This procedure reduces setup costs for the experiment. However, a setup error is unlikely to be detected. Furthermore, the effect of external factors such as humidity, tool wear, and so on, may not be captured during the successive runs if the runs are short in duration.
