# EXAMPLE OF SINGLE FACTOR EXPERIMENT

Dedy Sugiarto

Slide 1

## Example of single factor experiment with qualitative factor (Popcorn experiment)

For example, we may want to investigate the influence of pop corn brands on the proportion of un-popped kernels (minimize). We use completely randomize design or without blocking of experimental unit for this single factor experiment. There are tree levels for brand (A, B and C) and tree replications for each lavel. We use one hundred kernels for each trial and 3,5 minutes to make pop corn on stove.
Slide 2

We wish to test hypotheses about the treatment means, and our conclusion will apply only to the factor levels considered in the analysis
Ho : 1 = 2 = . = a H1 : i j for at least one pair (i,j)
Slide 3

## Randomization using Minitab :

Run order Brand C Brand C Brand B Brand A Brand C Brand B Brand A Brand A Brand B
Un-popped kernels proportion

## The results of experiment :

Slide 7

## Interpreting the Results :

The small p-values for the brand (p = 0.007) that lower than ( 0.05) suggest there is significant effect of brand on proportion of un-popped kernels. Individual 95% confidence interval for mean of three brand suggest that brand A has significantly difference with brand B.
Slide 8

## Example of single factor experiment with quantitative factor (Cotton experiment)

A product development engineer is interested in investigating the tensile strength of a new synthetic fiber that will be used to make cloth for mens shirts. The engineer knows from previous experience that the strength is affected by the weight percent of cotton used in the blend of materials for the fiber.

Slide 9

The Example

Furthermore, she suspects that increasing the cotton content will increase the strength, at least initially. She also knows that cotton content should range between about 10 and 40 percent if the final product is to have other quality characteristics that are desired (such as the ability to take a permanent-press finishing treatment).

Slide 10

The Example

The engineer decides to test specimens at five levels of cotton weight percent: 15, 20, 25, 30, and 35 percent. She also decides to test five specimens at each level of cotton content. This is a single-factor experiment with a = 5 levels of the factor and n = 5 replicates. The 25 runs should be made in random order.

The ANOVA

Slide 15

## The average value

This plot indicate that the tensile strength increases as cotton content increases, up to about 30 percent cotton.

Slide 16

## The Data Plot

This plot also indicate the same result as the previous plot, that the tensile strength increases as cotton content increases, up to about 30 percent cotton.

Still no strong evidence to suggest that the variability in tensile strength around the average depends on the cotton weight percentage.
Slide 17

The ANOVA

Is smaller than (=0.05), then the cotton weight percentage in the fiber significantly affects the mean tensile strength.

## Then, we better use the 30% cotton content!
