MTS (Mahalanobis Taguchi System) method is used to a multivariate engine driveability problem. The method was used with unique Time Based approach. Where each microsecond was considered as a sample data. The abnormal pattern in each microsecond can be found by using this approach. One can pin point the variable(s) that cause(s) the abnormality in the normal operation of a complex system such as powertrain. It would take weeks to come to the same conclusion by engineering judgment that would be found within 2 to 3 days by using this approach. A design of experiment (DOE) can be done to find out significant set of variables, which can lead the team towards a solution. But mostly it will require large resources and time to conduct it
