Title: Best Bang for the Buck: Part 2 – Choosing Between Different Sized Designs

Last month, we considered four potential designs of varying sizes and a variety of their attributes for an engineering problem involving a screening design with seven factors. The engineer’s original request was to find a design with 14 runs that could estimate all of the main effects, as well as have some potential for finding important two-factor interactions and possibly curvature in the underlying surface. This assessment was that the proposed size of design was potentially a bit too ambitious for the experiment’s goals, so we explored three other competing designs that had slightly larger sizes but were able to improve several aspects of the design.
