**Abstract**

In some processes, quality of a product should be characterized by functional relationships between response variables and a signal factor. Hence the traditional methods cannot be used to find the optimum solution. In this paper, we propose a method which considers two different dispersion effects, i.e. in domain and between replicates variations in the functional responses. Besides, we propose an integral based measure to find the deviation from t
