Ranjit K. Roy, Ph.D., P.E.,PMP  Principal Trainer & Consultant

 

Has been elected a Fellow of American Society of Quality Control by the Board of Directors in recognition of significant contributions to quality.

" For his outstanding work as a teacher of statistics for engineers and managers; as a consultant to leading corporations and government agencies in the field of design of experiments, and as author of numerous papers, articles, lectures, and software on statistical subjects, particularly the use of Taguchi methodology."

Background ( REVIEW TESTIMONIALS)        
Ranjit K. Roy, Ph.D., P.E.,PMP (Mechanical Engineering, president of Nutek, Inc.), is an internationally known consultant and trainer specializing in the Taguchi approach of quality improvement. Dr. Roy has achieved recognition for his down-to-earth style of teaching of the Taguchi experimental design technique to industrial practitioners. Based on his experience with a large number of application case studies, Dr. Roy teaches an application-oriented training seminar and has developed a number of computer software programs, including the Qualitek-4 software for use with the design of experiments using the Taguchi technique.

Dr. Roy began his career with The Burroughs Corporation following the completion of graduate studies in engineering at the University of Missouri-Rolla in 1972. He then worked for General Motors Corp. (1976-1987) assuming various engineering responsibilities, his last position being that of reliability manager. While at GM, he consulted on a large number of documented Taguchi case studies of significant cost savings. Before emigrating to USA, he completed the bachelors program in mechanical engineering from Regional Engineering College, Durgapur, India in 1968.

Dr. Roy established his own consulting company, Nutek, Inc. in 1987 and currently offers consulting, training, and application workshops in the use of design of experiments using the Taguchi approach. He is the author of A PRIMER ON THE TAGUCHI METHOD - published by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers in Dearborn, Michigan and Design of Experiments Using the Taguchi Approach: 16 Steps to Product and Process Improvement published (January 2001) by John Wiley & Sons, New York. Dr. Roy is a fellow of the American Society for Quality and an adjunct professor (1977 - 1999) at Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan. Dr. Roy is listed in the Marquis Who’s Who in the world.  Dr. Roy is also a certified instructor at Fairlane Training Center, Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan, USA and a Provisionally Certified Lead Auditor for QS-9000 Quality System Requirements. He is a Project management Professional (PMP) as certified by the Project Management Institute.
