In many manufacturing areas, design rules are used to assist in design for manufacturing. These rules are often specific and formal, yet they are usually developed in an ad-hoc manner by design committees and/or design software vendors. This work describes a database architecture and a statistical modeling methodology that enable the formal capture of manufacturing experience as new or revised design rules. The method uses pass/fail or other quality data from the firm's own manufacturing experience to update design limits or to introduce new design rules.
