Optimization of simulated systems is the goal of many methods, but most methods as- sume known environments. We, however, develop a `robust' methodology that accounts for uncertain environments. Our methodology uses Taguchi's view of the uncertain world, but replaces his statistical techniques by Kriging. We illustrate the resulting methodology through classic Economic Order Quantity (EOQ) inventory models. Our results suggest that robust optimization requires order quantities that dier from the classic EOQ. We also compare our latest results with our previous results that do not use Kriging but Response Surface Methodology (RSM).
