The evolutionary operation (EVOP) process is an ongoing mode of experimentation. It uses a fill-scale manufacturing process so that information may be generated that will improve the overall process while production is underway. This paper briefly reviews the EVOP process and demonstrates its use in a production environment. The use of such an approach for porcelain enamel processing is explained.
