This study proposes an interactive method for simultaneous consideration of continuous and ordinal quality characteristics in robust design of products or processes. In multiple response robust design problems design parameter settings that give desirable results for some quality characteristics often give inferior results for some others. Therefore, the determination of the best compromising solution requires incorporating decision maker preferences into the solution process. For this purpose, the proposed method estimates preference parameter values interactively using the preference information provided by a decision maker in the form of pairwise comparisons. The performance of the proposed method is analyzed for different values of preference parameters and stopping conditions.
