IE 410: Design of Experiments Lecture 14: Balanced Incomplete Block Designs Example: Recall the tire experiment. Suppose we wanted to test 5 brands of tires. Then we can't fit all 5 brands in each block (car).

A design in which not all treatments appear in blocks is an INCOMPLETE BLOCK DESIGN Well the design above doesn't look too bad. How about 6 brands?

Is this a good Design?

Analysis of Design A Design A is clearly No Good! For one thing, the contrast: μ 1 + μ 2 = μ 3 + μ 4 is completely confounded with blocks!

Suppose the model is given by: Y ij = μ + τ i + β j Suppose we got the following data (assume for the moment that there is no error at all)

Check to see if the following parameters fit the data perfectly: T(1) = 1 T(2) = -1 T(3) = 1 T(4) = -1 B(1) = 0 B(2) = 100 B(3) = 0 B(4) = 100 m = 0

Now Check to see if the following different parameters fit the data perfectly: T(1) = 1 T(2) = -1 T(3) = 101 T(4) = 99 B(1) = 0 B(2) = 0 B(3) = 0 B(4) = 0 m = 0

So is there a big difference between treatments? We can't tell. What can we tell from these data?

We can see that the difference between treatment means 1 and 2 is 2, and the same for treatment means 3 and 4. We cannot say anything about the following comparisons: 1 vs 3 1 vs 4 2 vs 3 2 vs 4

That is, we can only compare treatments WHEN THEY APPEAR TOGETHER IN THE SAME BLOCK!!!

important, then we would want: 1. Each pair of treatments to appear together in a block the same number of times. 2. We also want to observe each treatment
