2 5.1 Basic Definitions and Principles Study the effects of two or more factors.
Factorial designs
Crossed: factors are arranged in a factorial design
Main effect: the change in response produced by a change in the level of the factor


3 :

3 Definition of a factor effect: The change in the mean response when the factor is changed from low to high

5 Regression Model & The Associated Response Surface 

6 :

6 The Effect of Interaction on the Response Surface Suppose that we add an interaction term to the model: Interaction is actually a form of curvature 

7 :

7 When an interaction is large, the corresponding main effects have little practical meaning.
A significant interaction will often mask the significance of main effects.

8 5.3 The TwoFactor Factorial Design 5.3.1 An Example
a levels for factor A, b levels for factor B and n replicates
Design a battery: the plate materials (3 levels) v.s. temperatures (3 levels), and n = 4
Two questions:
What effects do material type and temperature have on the life of the battery?
Is there a choice of material that would give uniformly long life regardless of temperature?

17 Multiple Comparisons:
Use the methods in Chapter 3.
Since the interaction is significant, fix the factor B at a specific level and apply Turkey’s test to the means of factor A at this level.
See Pages 182, 183
Compare all ab cells means to determine which one differ significantly

Choice of sample size: Use OC curves to choose the proper sample size.

23 Consider a twofactor model without interaction:
Table 5.8
The fitted values:
Figure 5.15
One observation per cell:
The error variance is not estimable because the twofactor interaction and the error can not be separated.
Assume no interaction. (Table 5.9)
Tukey (1949): assume (??)ij = r?i?j (Page 192)

24 5.4 The General Factorial Design More than two factors: a levels of factor A, b levels of factor B, c levels of factor C, …, and n replicates.
Total abc … n observations.
For a fixed effects model, test statistics for each main effect and interaction may be constructed by dividing the corresponding mean square for effect or interaction by the mean square error. 

25 :

25 Degree of freedom:
Main effect: # of levels – 1
Interaction: the product of the # of degrees of freedom associated with the individual components of the interaction.
The three factor analysis of variance model:

Computing formulas for the sums of squares (see Page 196)

26 5.5 Fitting Response Curves and Surfaces An equation relates the response (y) to the factor (x).
Useful for interpolation.

A single replicate of a complete factorial experiment is run within each block.
