Optimal selection of blocked two-level fractional factorial designs. (English) Zbl 1146.62060
Summary: Blocked two-level fractional factorial designs are very useful for efficient data collection in industry experiments and other areas of scientific research. In some experiments, in addition to the main effects, some two-factor interactions may be important and should be estimated. We propose and study a method to select the best blocked two-level fractional factorial designs when some two-factor interactions are important. We then discuss how to search for the best designs according to this method and present some results for designs of 8 and 16 runs.
