Split-Plot Designs Is a method of dealing with restricted randomization within blocks Takes it name from agricultural roots Example Paper Tensile Strength (Table 13-14) A: Preparation method (3 levels) B: Temperature (4 levels) Three replicates, blocked as one replicate per day. Regular factorial approach would be: randomly picking within the 12 tests per day Split-plot approach is: make a batch using a random level of A, then test those at 4 temps

Savings from Split-Plot By using the Split-plot approach for this expt, only 3 batches were made per day , rather than 12. Replicate (random) and prep method are considered whole plots , temperature is a split plot (both prep and temp are fixed vars) In the model, include all three factors, and the 2-way interactions, but remember that the day (which is our replicate) is a block var , and

Unformatted text preview: should be analyzed as such 3 K Designs • 3 Levels of k factors – (low, medium, high) or – (-1 , 0 , 1) • (See figures 9-1, 9-2) • From the designs where all factors are quantitative, we can create a regression model.
