Abstract

Plackett-Burman designs and three quarter fractional factorial designs are both well established in the statistical literature yet have never been combined and studied. Plackett-Burman designs are often non-regular and are thus subject to complex aliasing. However, Plackett-Burman designs have the advantage of run-size efficiency (over the usual 2^(k) factorials) and taking three quarters of a Plackett-Burman design further improves this benefit. By considering projections of these designs, we constructed a catalog of designs of resolution V and ranked by D-efficiency.
