Paper Planes Experiment

Purpose:

2-factor factorial experiment (2k) approach. In week one, students will

perform a 1/8 fractional factorial experiment on a paper airplane

design that contains 6 design parameters, each design parameter

containing two possible factors. In week two, using the interaction

effects from the fractional factorial experiment, students will select the

best combination of design parameters to create the optimal paper

airplane. Experiments will be performed to assess the performance of

this optimal design.

Time Frame:

concluded out of class using Minitab, Excel, etc.

Week 2- Develop and test the new airplane design using results of DOE

from week 1.

Procedure:

In this lab, 8 paper airplane designs will be created as defined below. The

designs will vary based on the 6 design parameters. Trials will then be

performed to assess the performance of each design. The performance

measure of interest is the average distance traveled by the airplane in four

trials.

Knowing that the experiment is a 2k fractional factorial design; and that 1/8

of the number of trials is acceptable; and that there are 6 factors and 2

responses; what is the number of required airplanes which need to be

created?

(Answer):

2(6-3) =8;

Plane Design:

factors for this experiment are high and low level values/characteristics.

Therefore, the first two designs will be a completely high level and

completely low level airplane.

Partner 1 will make their paper airplane the low level factor airplane,

meaning they will be required to use the following materials:

Materials Low Level

Paper Type Standard Copy Paper

Length of Wing User Defined

Width of Body User Defined

Length of Body User Defined

Wing Type (Angled or Non-

Non-Angled

Angled)

Paper Clip User Defined

ISE 482L : Lab VII

The rows that state, User Defined, simply means that the airplane creator

can determine these lengths or number of paper clips, there are no

predetermined values.

Partner 2 will make their paper airplane the high level factor airplane

meaning they will be required to use the following materials:

Parameter High Level

Paper Type Bonded

Length of Wing User Defined, greater than Partner 1

Width of Body User Defined, greater than Partner 1

Length of Body User Defined, greater than Partner 1

Wing Type (Angled or Non-Angled) Angled

Paper Clip User Defined, greater than Partner 1

The columns that state, User Defined, greater than Partner 1, simply

means that the airplane creator can determine these lengths or number of

paper clips on their own, but needs to make sure that their values are

greater than Partner 1s values.

In addition to the High and Low level designs, 6 Intermediate designs must

be completed in order to carry out the fractional factorial experiment.

Design parameters for each intermediate design are listed in the tables

below. Make sure you mark your designs so airplanes designs can readily be

identified.

Recording Distances:

Knowing that 4 trials is acceptable, complete 4 runs with the each airplane,

then find the average distance covered by the airplane.

Input the main effects into Minitab, also include the interaction effects. This

is done by performing a Factorial Design, graphs like the figures below are

typical output from Minitab.

Interaction Examples:

ISE 482L : Lab VII

After evaluating the Minitab output results, the interactions with the

intersecting lines indicates that there is an interaction with the two

parameters, likewise if there is no intersection, then the two parameters do

not have an interaction.

Which control parameter or parameters had the greatest effect? And why?

(Hint: Pareto Chart, but say why you chose it if used)

There is a known problem with this lab. When you find the problem, suggest

changes to this lab by modifying this document.

Week 1 Deliverables:

1. Modified lab

2. Minitab Analysis including Main Effect Plot and Interaction Plot

ISE 482L : Lab VII

3. Lab report, including how and why lab was modified, and identification

of parameters that have the greatest effect and how these were

chosen.

Based on the most influential variables and the interaction effects, create the

ultimate paper airplane. Re-run the experiment 4 times and note the

distances. Conclude in the lab write-up the change you made to the

airplane, and whether your resultant design effected the distance of your

airplane.

Were the distances longer? Were the results what you expected?

Conclude the experiment by completing the written report, the format can be

seen on the following page.

1. Purpose

2. Procedure:

a. A summary of your experimental design, describe who was

involved and how you made your initial airplane, materials used,

testing protocol used.

b. Describe what computer or book aides were used

3. Results:

a. Provide all required and any supplemental tables and graphs in

the body of the report. At the minimum there should be a graph

for all significant interaction effects, and a Minitab factorial

design test determining the interaction effects.

b. Clearly state the expected relationship between the initial

designs of high and low performance planes, to the final design.

c. Explain how you determined what factors were significant.

d. Conclude how you interpreted the results from Minitab.

4. Conclusions:

a. Discuss how well the results matched the expectations.

b. Explain the discrepancies between expected and actual results.

c. Explain whether Minitab helped or hindered your understanding

of the experiment

d. Make suggestions to make this experiment better.

e. Conclude where human error may have played a role in this

experiment. If so how can the human error be eliminated.
