Strip-plot configurations of fractional factorials. (English) Zbl 0889.62069
Summary: Running industrial experiments in strip-plot configurations can be a useful method of reducing cost. This article presents an effective procedure for constructing strip-plot arrangements of fractional factorial designs that can be used for \(m\)-level or mixed-level designs. The procedure consists of three steps: (1) Identify a suitable row design, (2) identify a suitable column design, and (3) select a latin-square fraction of the product of the designs in (1) and (2). Several examples are used to demonstrate the procedure.
