Experimentation is the most important tool in the research and development of new and improved products and processes. With this in mind, a statistically designed series of experiments was carried out to optimize the gloss in conventional glazes. In particular, the Taguchi approach to experimentation coupled with a mixture design was used. By selecting pertinent compositional parameters that may affect gloss, experiments were conducted to determine the relative importance of these factors. Statistical analysis of the resulting data is presented.
