  author={Scott M. Kowalski and Kevin J. Potcner},
  journal={Quality Progress},
60 I NOVEMBER 2003 I www.asq.org he application of statistically designed experiments is becoming increasingly important in organizations engaged in Six Sigma and other quality initiatives. In conducting these experiments and analyzing the resulting data, experimenters become aware of the treatment structure of the design: the number of factors to be studied and the various factor level combinations. For example, most practitioners know a 2 full factorial design consists of three factors, each…

Tutorial: Industrial Split-plot Experiments

ABSTRACT Many industrial experiments involve two types of factors: those that are hard-to-change and those that are easy-to-change (ETC). Hard-to-change (HTC) factors have levels that are difficult

How to analyze a split-plot experiment

any quality improvement projects require some form of experimentation on a process. A chemical engineer may wish to determine the settings for certain process variables to optimize a critical quality

Response Surface Design and Analysis in the Presence of Restricted Randomization

Practical restrictions on randomization are commonplace in industrial experiments due to the presence of hard-to-change or costly-to-change factors. Employing a split-plot design structure minimizes

Checking the Adequacy of Fit of Models from Split-Plot Designs

One of the main features that distinguish split-plot experiments from other experiments is that they involve two types of experimental errors: the whole-plot (WP) error and the subplot (SP) error.

A Running Example for Use in a Class on Design of Experiments

ABSTRACT Classroom discussion is an effective way for students to interact and learn. A class on design of experiments usually covers many related design strategies. It can be useful to have one

Optimal Semi-Split-Plot Designs with R

An algorithm to generate optimal Semi-Split-Plot designs is presented and a tutorial for the R package rospd that implements the algorithm is given.

Lab-Scale Fiber Spinning Experimental Design Cost Comparison

Many statistical experimental designs are too costly or require too much raw material to be feasible for lab-scale fiber spinning experiments. In this study a four-factor response surface design is

Process Improvement: The Six Sigma Approach

An overview of Six Sigma, from its beginning until nowadays, giving a description of its phases is provided, and it is important to remark that the use of correct T&T plus a consideration of CSFs may considerable increase chances to obtain benefits implementing SS.



Environmental robustness and optimality are important concerns for improving current products and processes and for designing new ones and can rarely be achieved simultaneously.
