Design of Experiments

Manikandan Jayakumar 11

The objective of a design of experiments (DOE) is to optimize the value of a response variable by changing the

values, referred to as levels, of the factors that affect the response. Although often a response is continuous in

nature, there are some cases in which the response falls in the attribute category (e.g., pass/fail, accept/reject,

etc.). This article explains how to analyze an attribute type of response, using an example from the

manufacturing sector.

Example Experiment

In this example there are three factors with two levels. The factors are renamed as Factor1, Factor2 and

Factor3, and the levels are coded as -1, +1.

The experiment was conducted with 10 replicates, or repetitions of the experiment at each combination of level

settings, to provide greater accuracy for attribute data.

In this example, the total number of runs was LF x replicates = 23 x 10 = 80, where L = number of levels

and F = number of factors.

A single set of experiments with 10 replicates is shown in Table 1.

Next, the responses for the replicates of this experiment were converted into proportions, p. In the results

shown in Table 1, the proportion of OK (okay) to NOK (not okay) was 9 out of 10. Thus, p = 0.90.

Once the experiment was conducted for all combinations of levels, the captured OK/NOK attribute responses

were converted into proportions, displayed in Table 2.

Arcsine Function

The arcsine square-root transform is the variance stabilizing transform for the binomial distribution and is the

most commonly used transformation. It assists when working with proportions and percentages. The

proportion, p, can be made nearly normal if the square root of p is used with the arcsine (or inverse sine: sin-1)

transform. The arcsine transform is then computed as a function of p ? arcsin (sqrt(p)).

In the example, the calculated p was converted into sqrt(p) and then again converted into arcsin (sqrt(p)) by

using the arcsine function. The results are shown in Table 3.

Analysis of Results

The general linear model (GLM) in analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to identify the significant factor(s)

among the three factors. The arcsine value was specified as the response, and Factor1, Factor2, Factor3 were

provided as the factors. The output of GLM is shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1: General Linear Model: Arcsin (Sqrt(p)) Versus Factor1, Factor2, Factor3

The p-value calculated within the GLM results indicates that Factor1 and Factor2 are statistically significant.

That is, those factors have a significant bearing on the arcsine value.

Interaction Plot

An interaction plot displays the mean of the response variable for each level of a factor with the level of a

second factor held constant. Interaction plots are useful for judging the presence of interactions when the

response at one factor level depends upon the level(s) of other factors.

Parallel lines in an interaction plot indicate no interaction; non-parallel lines indicate an interaction between the

factors. The greater the departure of the lines from the parallel state, the higher the degree of interaction. To

produce an interaction plot, data must be available from all combinations of levels.

An interaction plot for the sample data is shown in Figure 2.

In all cases in Figure 2, the interaction lines are parallel, which shows there are no significant interactions

between the factors.

A main effects plot is used in conjunction with ANOVA and DOE to examine differences in the response

variable at varying levels for one or more factors. When different levels of a factor affect the response

differently, a main effect is present. A main effects plot graphs the response mean for each factor level

connected by a line.

The general patterns to look for are:

When the line is horizontal (parallel to the x-axis), there is no main effect present. Each level of the

factor affects the response in the same way, and the response mean is the same across all factor levels.

When the line is not horizontal, then there is a main effect present. Different levels of the factor affect

the response differently. The steeper the slope of the line, the greater the magnitude of the main effect.

The sample data is shown in a main effects plot in Figure 3 and suggests that a main effect is present in

Factor1 and Factor2 as the lines are not horizontal.

In the example, a larger value of the response arcsin (sqrt(p)) represents a better outcome. With that in mind,

the analysis suggests that the levels -1 for Factor1, +1 for Factor2 and +1 for Factor3 will provide the desired

results (i.e., high proportion of acceptance, or low proportion of rejections).

Response Optimization

Response optimization is a method of analysis to identify the combination of input variable settings that jointly

optimize a single response or a set of responses. Within a statistical analysis program, the response optimizer

function provides an optimal solution for the input variable combinations, and sometimes an optimization plot.

The optimization plot may be interactive, in which case the input variable settings can be adjusted on the plot to

search for more desirable solutions.

Figure 4 shows the results of the response optimizer analysis for the example data. It indicates that the

maximum arcsine is 1.5708 with a desirability of 1.
