# Questions tagged [fractional-factorial]

Experimental designs that use only a subset of possible factor combinations. Typically, some factors are intentionally confounded w/ some interactions, making the interactions impossible to estimate, but requiring a smaller N for the study.

### Machine Learning for optimization of configuration file

For my master's thesis I am using a 3rd party program (SExtractor) in addition to a python pipeline to work with astronomical image data. SExtractor takes a configuration file with numerous parameters ...

### Algorithm for generating a multi-level fractional factorial design

I would like to perform some black box testing on some software that takes a large number of input variables. These variables can have some interactions (either intentional or non-intentional) so I ...

### Fractional Factorial Design

In a $2^5$ design, it is believed that only the main effects $(A,B,C,D, E)$ and $AB,AC$ interaction effects are non-zero. I need to construct a fractional factorial with minimum number of runs which ...

### $2^k 3^l$ factorial design

I'm looking for a reference for a $2^k 3^l$ fractional factorial design. Do such things exist? I could use a D-optimal but would prefer a clean aliasing structure. Any tips on software also good. Use ...
