14-1 Introduction
 An experiment is a test or series of tests.  The design of an experiment plays a major role in the eventual solution of the problem.  In a factorial experimental design, experimental trials (or runs) are performed at all combinations of the factor levels.  The analysis of variance (ANOVA) will be used as one of the primary tools for statistical data analysis.
