Unformatted text preview: ately, the concept of interactions is not self-explanatory-even among intelligent, mathematically inclined people in the sciences. Hence, as part of the package of guide sheets, it is helpful to include a tutorial. The graphical portion of the tutorial is presented in Figure 6. An additional, expository description of interactions is sometimes included, but it is not shown here. The interactions table explicitly recognizes only pairwise interactions of linear terms. It provides an opportunity for the experimenters to capture knowledge or speculation that certain pairwise interactions may be present and others are unlikely to be present. This input is helpful when the experiment is later designed-to choose resolution, or more generally to choose which effects should or should not be confounded. Higher order effects may also be important but are not captured in the guide sheets. The interaction sheet for the CNC-machining example is shown in Table 6. A helpful way to use this matrix is to avoid discussing every possible pairwise interaction one at a time but instead use the process of elimination or inclusion; that is. if interactions are generally imTECHNOMETRICS, FEBRUARY 1993, VOL. 35, NO. 1 C.
