Uses of Factorial design
Answer – The factorial design can be used:
- Identify which factors have the most important effect on the reaction.
- Decide whether further investigation of the effect of a factor is appropriate or not.
- Check the functional dependency of the reaction on multiple factors simultaneously (if and only if you examine many levels of each factor).
- Determine whether the specified factors affect the response of a given treatment.
- See if two factors interact with each other.
- Optimize the response in screening experiments.
- Reduce the possibility of missing an effect as the selected material is insensitive.
