In this paper we provide an annotated bibliography of about 140 papers which have appeared
in journals in a variety of areas in the last 5 years and in which a fractional factorial design
has been used. For each reference, we have indicated the design or designs used and whether or
not the responses are given in the paper. The level of detail given in these papers makes them
suitable sources for examples in a course on the design and analysis of experiments. c 2002

Factorial designs were introduced in the agricultural area by Fisher (1926) in the
1920s and taken up enthusiastically both there, and in the manufacturing and engineer-
ing areas, partly due to the e orts of Tippett (1934). More recently, Taguchi (1987)
is credited with being responsible for the extensive use of fractional factorial designs
in industry in both Japan and the US. Bisgaard (1992) gives an eclectic history of
factorial designs and their use in industry. Theoretical developments, notably the con-
struction of fractional factorial designs, may be found in Kempthorne (1952), McLean
and Anderson (1984) and Montgomery (1991).

Despite the large number of fractional factorial designs that are used in industry at
the moment, most undergraduate textbooks on experimental design continue to present
examples from the 1940s and 1950s. The list of case studies provided in Bisgaard
(1992) goes some way to alleviating this problem but of the 131 case studies that he
cites, the latest ones were published in 1975 and only 10 are fromthe 1970s at all. By

A table showing the areas in which we have found fractional factorial designs used
choice, all his examples are industrial. Most textbooks make no mention of the fact
that fractional factorial designs are also used in investigations in areas as diverse as
law, marketing and medicine. Examples of the areas in which we have found fractional
factorial designs used may be found in Table 1.

In this paper we give an annotated bibliography of around 140 papers in a variety
of application areas, as tabulated in Table 1. With the exception of about 20 papers,
chosen because there were few in that application area, all the papers given have the
original responses given. About 30% of the papers we originally reviewed did not have
the raw data. Many papers do not mention the statistical software used to perform the
analyses, but of those that do Statgraphics and SAS proved to be the most popular.

The bibliography is divided into ÿve sections depending on the type of design that
was used. Thus we have listed separately those papers that used two (or more) distinct
designs and those which used a Box–Behnken, central composite or Plackett–Burman
design and the remainder of the papers are in a section called simply fractional factorial
In the next section, we recall the deÿnitions of the designs that we have chosen to
A factor is any attribute of the experimental units which may a ect the response
observed in the experiment. Those factors which are applied by the experimenter are
called treatment factors and any factors which are inherent attributes of the units are
called block factors. The possible values that a factor can take are called the levels of
Each of the possible combinations of the treatment factor levels is called a treatment
combination. A complete factorial design (FD) is one in which each of the treatment
combinations appears an equal number of times. If all the treatment factors have 2
levels then we talk about a 2k design. A FFD is one in which only a subset of the
treatment combinations appear. We use 2k

*−*p to denote a 1=2p fraction of a 2k design.

A foldover design is a 2k

*−*p FFD which has been doubled in size by including the
complementary treatment combinations; that is, the treatment combinations obtained by
changing all 1’s to 0’s and 0’s to 1’s.

A balanced incomplete block design (BIBD) with parameters (v; b; r; k; ) consists
of b blocks each of size k. The number of treatments in the design is v, all treatments
are replicated r times and every pair of treatments appears in
restrictions are placed on the values of v; b; r; k, and . In particular, counting the
occurrences of treatments, vr=bk and by counting pairs of treatments, (v

*−*1)=r(k

*−*1).

Because of these relationships we usually talk about a (v; k; ) BIBD.

A v factor Box–Behnken design (BBD) is formed from the v

*× *b incidence matrix
of a BIBD and a complete 2k design written with the factors as rows (Table 2). The
ÿrst 1 in each block in the incidence matrix is replaced by the levels of the ÿrst factor
in the 2k design, the second 1 in each block is replaced by the levels of the second
factor in the 2k design and so on. Each zero in the incidence matrix is replaced by a
row of k zeroes. Centre points may also be added. These designs were introduced by

A central composite design for three factors
A FFD in which all of the main e ects can be estimated independently of any in-
teraction terms is said to be of resolution III. A FFD in which all of the two-factor
interactions can be estimated independently of main e ects and other two factor inter-
actions is said to be of resolution V. The foldover of a FFD of resolution III is of
resolution IV. In general a FFD is of resolution R if no p factor interaction is aliased
with another interaction containing less than R

*− *p factors.

A central composite design (CCD) has three parts. The ÿrst is a resolution V FFD,
the second is points on the axes of each of the factors, located equidistant fromthe
origin, and the third is some points at the origin. The points on the axes are called the
star points or the axial points. A CCD for three factors with axial points at distance
1.6 fromthe origin and 2 centre points appears in Table 3.

Plackett and Burman (1946) introduced symmetric designs with factors with 2, 3, 5
or 7 levels in which main e ects could be estimated if interactions are ignored. The
two-level designs with N runs, where N is not a power of two, are the designs that
are commonly referred to when the phrase Plackett–Burman design is used but Rogan
et al. (1994) uses a three-level PBD. The aliasing structure of these designs can get
complicated; see Hamada and Wu (1992) and Box and Draper (1987). The design in
A screening design is a design used to determine which of a set of factors are
active. A response surface design is one used to estimate the parameters of a surface
modelling the response given the factors studied. Five of the papers use the Doehlert
uniform shell design (Doehlert, 1970). These designs have d2 + d + 1 points for d
factors: one at the origin and the other points on a sphere centered at the origin.

Lymphoma is considered to be the most chemo-responsive cancer in cats and treatment with multi-agent chemotherapy is associated with the longest survival times. Common protocols include ACOPA and Madison Wisconsin, but both utilize the same chemotherapy agents. The induction part of the treatment protocol ranges from 21-25 weeks. The goal of induction chemotherapy is to induce a remission whi
