Designing Multi-Factor Experiments

Building on work dating to the 1920’s on methods of designing experiments for situations in which multiple factors are involved, API has developed a system of experimentation that has been applied primarily in manufacturing and products development settings. Members of API have described the system in Quality Improvement through Planned Experimentation (McGraw-Hill).

The aim of this project is to extend the system of experimentation to more complex situations and to applications in the service industries.
