This paper introduces a technique that can be used in the early manufacturing process design stage to select from among the set of quality characteristics a smaller set that is adequate to ensure a product meets yield specifications. The critical subset of quality characteristics needed to ensure yield are identified, based upon a conditional probability model that ensures all specifications are met, given that the critical subset is met. The approach is demonstrated using a sheet stretch forming manufacturing system from the aerospace industry.
