# 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.

### Are crossed factorial design and full factorial design the same concept?

About crossed factorial design, two factors A and B are crossed, if every level of A can occur in every level of B. A full factorial/crossed experiment is an experiment whose experimental units take ...

### 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 ...

### Is it possible to determine how many effects I can estimate in a least squares problem just by looking at the correlation matrix?

I currently have a model matrix $X$ with $6$ columns, which is being used for a factorial design problem, with each column associated with an effect. The ultimate goal is to be able to estimate as ...

### Experimental design vs factorial design

During my study about experimental design, I detect from some examples that factorial design is a sub-step in an experimental design. However till now the idea seems not fully clear for me. What is ...

### Fractional factorial design. only main effects considered

I have 15 factors which I want to optimize. Instead of running a fractional factorial design consisting of 32 runs, if I run a design consisting of 16 runs, will I only get main effects or any second ...

### Full factorial repeated measures ANOVA

I have a Full factorial design where factor1 has 2 levels and factor2 has 5 levels fully crossed (10 treatments in total). Then the samples are collected from same individuals (plots) at 6 different ...

### “Incomplete Design” Problem: 2(between) x 2(within) x 2(within--but only in one between group!)

Problem: I am trying to analyze an experiment with the design in the title: 2(between) x 2(within) x 2(within--but only manipulated in one group) My initial hunch was to run two separate 2 (between)...
