This chapter applies design of experiments to improve plating performance and better practices in an electrochemical process within a company making electronic components. Specifically, the electroplated process of a metal housing served as the object of study. This process consists of plating an aluminum housing with silver (Ag) to improve the electrical signal characteristics and properties. It includes multiple factors affecting the process, which are clearly seen in the diverse failures such as electric response, pollution by solid waste, among others. These directly impact production costs and delivery time. To minimize the mentioned failures, diverse critical factors were enlisted discovering that the principal problem is the homogeneous distribution of the final finish of the commented product. Particularly, the final finish is realized with silver so it directly affects the electric response as final quality test.
