In 26 factorial design, 64 runs for one replicate. Among them, 6 df for main effects, 15 df for two-factor interaction. That is, only 21 of them are majorly interested in. Introduction(2/5) The remaining 42 df are for three of higher interactions. If the experimenter can reasonably assume that certain high-order interactions are negligible, information on the main effects and low-order interactions may be obtained by running only a fraction of the complete factorial design. Introduction(3/5) The Fractional Factorial Designs are among the most widely used types of designs for product and process design and process improvement. A major use of fraction factorials is in screening experiments. Introduction(4/5) Three key ideas that fractional factorial can be used effectively: The sparsity of effects principle – When there are several variables, the system or process is likely to be driven primarily by some of the main effects an lower-order interactions. The projection property -- Fractional factorials can be projected into stronger designs in the subset of significant factors. Introduction Sequential experimentation – It is possible to combine the runs of two or more fractional factorials to assemble sequentially a larger design to estimate the factor effects and interactions interested. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles Consider a 23 factorial design but an experimenter cannot afford to run all (8) the treatment combinations but only 4 runs. This suggests a one-half fraction of a 23 design. Because the design contains 23-1=4 treatment combinations, a one-half fraction of the 23 design is often called a 23-1 design. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles Consider a 23 factorial The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles We can have tow options: One is the “+” sign in column ABC and the other is the “-” sign in column ABC. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles For the “+” in column ABC, effects a, b, c, and abc are selected. For the “-” in column ABC, effects ab, ac, bc, and (1) are selected. Since we use ABC to determine which half to be used, ABC is called generator. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles We look further to see if the “+” sign half is used, the sign in column I is identical to the one we used. We call I=ABC is the defining relation in our design. Note: C=AB is factor relation. C=AB I=ABC The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles In general, the defining relation for a fractional factorials will always be the set of all columns that are equal to the identity column I. If one examines the main effects: [A]=1/2(a-b-c+abc) [B]= 1/2(-a+b-c+abc) [C]= 1/2(-a-b+c+abc) The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles The two-factor interactions effects: [BC]=1/2(a-b-c+abc) [AC]= 1/2(-a+b-c+abc) [AB]= 1/2(-a-b+c+abc) Thus, A = BC, B = AC, C = AB The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles So [A] A+BC [B] B+AC [C] C+AB The alias structure can be found by using the defining relation I=ABC. AI = A(ABC) = A2BC = BC BI =B(ABC) = AC CI = C(ABC) = AB The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles The contrast for estimating the main effect A is exactly the same as the contrast used for estimating the BC interaction. In fact, when estimating A, we are estimating A+BC. This phenomena is called aliasing and it occurs in all fractional designs. Aliases can be found directly from the columns in the table of + and – signs. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles This one-half fraction, with I=ABC, is usually called the principal fraction. That is, we could choose the other half of the factorial design from Table. This alternate, or complementary, one-half fraction (consisting the runs (1), ab, ac, and bc) must be chosen on purpose. The defining relation of this design is I=-ABC The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles So [A]’ A-BC [B]’ B-AC [C]’ C-AB The alias structure can be found by using the defining relation I=-ABC. AI = A(-ABC) = A2BC = -BC BI =B(-ABC) = -AC CI = C(-ABC) = -AB The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Definitions and Basic Principles In practice, it does not matter which fraction is actually used. Both fractions belong to the same family. Two of them form a complete 23 design. The two groups of runs can be combined to form a full factorial – an example of sequential experimentation The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Design Resolution The 23-1 design is called a resolution III design. In this design, main effects are aliased with two-factor interactions. In general, a design is of resolution R if no p factor effect is aliased with another effect containing less than R-p factors. For a 23-1 design, no one (p) factor effect is aliased with one (less than 3(R) – 1(p)) factor effect. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Design Resolution Resolution III designs – These are designs in which no main effects are aliased with any other main effect. But main effects are aliased with two-factor interactions and some twofactor interactions maybe aliased with each other. The 23-1 design is a resolution III design. Noted as 23III1 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Design Resolution Resolution IV designs – These are designs in which no main effects are aliased with any other main effect or with any two-factor interaction. But two-factor interaction are aliased with each other. The 24-1 design with I=ABCD is a resolution IV design. Noted as 24IV1 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Design Resolution Resolution V designs – These are designs in which no main effects or two-factor interaction is aliased with any other main effect or with any two-factor interaction. But two-factor interaction are aliased with threefactor interaction. The 25-1 design with I=ABCDE is a resolution V design. Noted as 25IV1 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction Example: 23III1 C‧I=C‧ABC=AB The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction The one-half fraction of the 2k design of the highest resolution may be constructed by writing down a basic design consisting of the runs for a full 2k-1 factorial and then adding the kth factor by identifying its plus and minus levels with the plus and minus signs of the highest order interaction ABC..(K-1). The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction Note: Any interaction effect could be used to generate the column for the kth factor. However, use any effect other than ABC…(K1) will not product a design of the highest possible resolution. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction Any fractional factorial design of resolution R contains complete factorial designs (possibly replicated factorials) in any subset of R-1 factors. Important and useful !!! Example, if an experiment has several factors of potential interest but believes that only R-1 of them have important effects, the a fractional factorial design of resolution R is the appropriate choice of design. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction Because the maximum possible resolution of a one-half fraction of the 2k design is R=k, every 2k-1 design will project into a full factorial in any (k-1) of the original k factors. the 2k-1 design may be projected into two replicates of a full factorial in any subset of k-2 factors., four replicates of a full factorial in any subset of k-3 factors, and so on. 29 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – example (1--1/7) Y=filtration rate Fours factors: A, B, C, and D.

Particularly if the runs can be made sequentially. For example, suppose that we are investigating k=4 factors (24=16 runs). It is almost always preferable to run 24-1IV fractional design (four runs), analyze the results, and then decide on the best set of runs to perform next. The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction If it is necessary to resolve ambiguities, we can always run the alternate fraction and complete the 24 design. When this method is used to complete the design, both one-half fractions represent blocks of the complete design with the highest order interaction (ABCD) confounded with blocks. Sequential experimentation has the result of losing only the highest order interaction. Possible Strategies for Follow-Up Experimentation Following a Fractional Factorial Design 47 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – example (3—1/4) From Example 1, 24-1IV design Use I=-ABCD STAT>DOE>Factorial>Create Factorial Design Create base design first 2-level factorial(specify generators) Number of factors 3 Design Full factorial Generators D=-ABC OK 48 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – example (3—2/4) 49 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – example (3—3/4) 50 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – example (3—4/4) Estimated Effects and Coefficients for Filtration (coded units) Term Effect Coef Constant 69.375 Temperature 24.250 12.125 Pressure 4.750 2.375 Conc. 5.750 2.875 Stir Rate 12.750 6.375 Temperature*Pressure 1.250 0.625 Temperature*Conc. -17.750 -8.875 Temperature*Stir Rate 14.250 7.125 S = * PRESS = * Analysis of Variance for Filtration (coded units) Source DF Seq SS Main Effects 4 1612 2-Way Interactions 3 1039 Residual Error 0 * Total 7 2652 Adj SS 1612 1039 * Adj MS 403.1 346.5 * F * * P * * 51 The One-Half Fraction of the 2k Design – Construction and analysis of the one-half fraction Adding the alternate fraction to the principal fraction may be thought of as a type of confirmation experiment that will allow us to strengthen our initial conclusions about the twofactor interaction effects. A simple confirmation experiment is to compare the results from regression and actual runs. The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design For a moderately large number of factors, smaller fractions of the 2k design are frequently useful. One-quarter fraction of the 2k design 2k-2 runs called 2k-2 fractional factorial The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design Constructed by writing down a basic design consisting of runs associated with a full factorial in k-2 factors and then associating the two additional columns with appropriately chosen interactions involving the first k-2 factors. Thus, two generators are needed. I=P and I=Q are called generating relations for the design. The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design The signs of P and Q determine which one of the one-quarter fractions is produced. All four fractions associated with the choice of generators ±P or ±Q are members of the same family. +P and +Q are principal fraction. I=P=Q=PQ P, Q, and PQ are defining relation words The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design 6 2 IV Example: 2 P=ABCE, Q=BCDF, PQ=ADEF Thus A=BCE=ABCDF=DEF When estimating A, one is really estimating A+BCE+DEF+ABCDF The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design Complete defining relation: I = ABCE = BCDF = ADEF 57 The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design 58 The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design 6 2 IV 2 Factor relations: E=ABC, F=BCD I=ABCE=BCDF=ADEF The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design STAT>DOE>Factorial>Create factorial Design Design Full factorialOKOK 60 The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design 61 The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design Alternate fractions of 26-2 design P=ABCE, -Q=-BCDF -P=-ABCE, Q=BCDF -P=-ABCE, -Q=-BCDF [A] A+BCE-DEF-ABCDF The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design A 26-2 design will project into a single replicate of a 24 design in any subset of fours factors that is not a word in the defining relation. It also collapses to a replicated one-half fraction of a 24 in any subset of four factors that is a word in the defining relation. The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design Projection of the design into subsets of the original six variables Any subset of the original six variables that is not a word in the complete defining relation will result in a full factorial design Consider ABCD (full factorial) Consider ABCE (replicated half fraction) Consider ABCF (full factorial) 64 The One-Quarter Fraction of the 2k Design In general, any 2k-2 fractional factorial design can be collapsed into either a full factorial or a fractional factorial in some subset of r≦k-2 of the original factors. Those subset of variables that form full factorials are not words in the complete defining relation.

Appendix X provides a good reference for choosing “better” design Do not choose a design according to one single criterion unless is “order” by your boss. The General 2k-p Fractional Factorial Design – Analysis Use computer soft wares. Projection – a design of resolution R contains full factorials in any R – 1 of the factors 27-3IV design The General 2k-p Fractional Factorial Design – Analysis It will project into a full factorial in any four of the original seven factors that is not a word in the defining relation C(7, 5)=35 subsets of four factors. 7 of them (ABCE, BCDF, ACDG, ADEF, BDEG, ABFG, and CEFG) appeared in defining relations. The rest of 28 four-factor subset would form 24 designs. The General 2k-p Fractional Factorial Design – Analysis Obviously, A, B, C, D are one of them. Consider the following situation: If the 4 of 7 factors are more important than the rest of 3 factors, we would assign the more important four factors to A, B, C, D and the less important 3 factors to E, F, and G. The General 2k-p Fractional Factorial Design – Blocking Sometimes the runs needed in fraction factorial can not be made under homogeneous conditions. We confound the fractional factorial with blocks. Appendix X contain recommended blocking arrangements for fractional factorial designs.
