A Catalogue of Three-Level Fractional Factorial Designs
A common problem experimenters face is the choice of fractional factorial designs. Minimum aberration designs are commonly used in practice. There are situations in which other designs meet practical needs better. A catalogue of designs would help experimenters choose the best design. Based on coding theory, new methods are proposed to efficiently classify and rank fractional factorial designs. A collection of three-level fractional factorial designs with 27, 81, 243 and 729 runs is given. This extends the work of Chen, Sun and Wu (1993), who gave a collection of fractional factorial designs with 16, 27, 32 and 64 runs.
