There are many welding parameters In welding process, the major factors whose selection contributes to the welded product as they all affect the strength and quality to a larger extent are weld design (edge preparation), Root face, and Root gap. The purpose of this paper is to efficiently determine the optimum welding operation parameters for achieving the highest ultimate strength in range of parameters. In order to meet the purpose in terms of both efficiency and effectiveness, this study will utilize the Taguchi parameters design methodology. The study includes selection of parameters, utilizing an orthogonal array, conducting experimental runs, data analysis, determining the optimum combination, finally the experimental verification and comparison by regression modelling.
