    According to the fact that the FDM process has several input parameters that should be optimized toward a zero-defect manufacturing production. In this chapter, at first statistical analysis and mathematical methods used in the design of the experiment and optimizing printing parameters, which are used in FDM printing parameters are defined, and then they are reviewed, discussed and categorized. In this regard, the application of different methods such as statistical modelling, design of experiments (DOEs), Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and Hybrid approaches are discussed. In the next section, using the results of researches in this field, they are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and the optimal printing parameters with different conditions, materials and goals are introduced in FDM 3D printing.
