The primary function of the Wheatstone bridge is to measure an unknown resistance. The elements of this well-known measurement circuit will take on different values depending upon the range and accuracy required for a particular application. The Taguchi approach to parameter design is used to select values for the measurement circuit elements so as to reduce measurement error. Next we introduce the use of an artificial neural network to extrapolate limited experimental results to predict system response over a wide range of applications. This approach can be employed for on-line quality control of the manufacture of such device.
