The purpose of real-life problems is often to be able to find less expensive and more effective ways of production without compromising product quality because companies must provide competitive advantage to maintain existence. In order to improve quality, design of experiment techniques is employed. RSM is a widely used technique thanks to its minimum number of experiment requirement. Hence it is used especially with continuous solution spaces and high-cost experimentations. Moreover, in most cases there is more than one response that firms must optimize simultaneously. For instance companies want to reduce the costs while improving product quality. Decision making is more difficult when conflicting objectives exist. For this reason multi response optimization is an important field to study. In this study, optimization of a manufacturing problem with two responses was carried out by the application of response surface methodology (RSM) and desirability function.
