Outline The Randomized Complete Block Design The Latin Square Design
The Graeco-Latin Square Design Balanced Incomplete Block Design

The Randomized Complete Block Design
In some experiment, the variability may arise from factors that we are not interested in. A nuisance factor (擾亂因子)is a factor that probably has some effect on the response, but it’s of no interest to the experimenter … however, the variability it transmits to the response needs to be minimized These nuisance factor could be unknown and uncontrolled  use randomization

The Randomized Complete Block Design
If the nuisance factor are known but uncontrollable  use the analysis of covariance. If the nuisance factor are known but controllable  use the blocking technique Typical nuisance factors include batches of raw material, operators, pieces of test equipment, time (shifts, days, etc.), different experimental units

The Randomized Complete Block Design
Many industrial experiments involve blocking (or should) Failure to block is a common flaw in designing an experiment (consequences?)

The Randomized Complete Block Design-example
We wish determine whether or not four different tips produce different readings on a hardness testing machine. One factor to be consider  tip type Completely Randomized Design could be used with one potential problem  the testing block could be different The experiment error could include both the random and coupon errors.

The Randomized Complete Block Design-example
To reduce the error from testing coupon, randomize complete block design(RCBD) is used

The Randomized Complete Block Design-example
Each coupon is called a “block”; that is, it’s a more homogenous experimental unit on which to test the tips “complete” indicates each testing coupon (BLOCK) contains all treatments Variability between blocks can be large, variability within a block should be relatively small In general, a block is a specific level of the nuisance factor

The Randomized Complete Block Design-example
A complete replicate of the basic experiment is conducted in each block A block represents a restriction on randomization All runs within a block are randomized Once again, we are interested in testing the equality of treatment means, but now we have to remove the variability associated with the nuisance factor (the blocks)

Partitioning the total variability

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Extension from ANOVA
The degrees of freedom for the sums of squares in are as follows: Therefore, ratios of sums of squares to their degrees of freedom result in mean squares and the ratio of the mean square for treatments to the error mean square is an F statistic that can be used to test the hypothesis of equal treatment means

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Extension from ANOVA
Meaning of F0=MSBlocks/MSE? The randomization in RBCD is applied only to treatment within blocks The Block represents a restriction on randomization Two kinds of controversial theories

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Extension from ANOVA
Meaning of F0=MSBlocks/MSE? General practice, the block factor has a large effect and the noise reduction obtained by blocking was probably helpful in improving the precision of the comparison of treatment means if the ration is large

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Example

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Example
To conduct this experiment as a RCBD, assign all 4 pressures to each of the 6 batches of resin Each batch of resin is called a “block”; that is, it’s a more homogenous experimental unit on which to test the extrusion pressures

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Example —Residual Analysis
Basic residual plots indicate that normality, constant variance assumptions are satisfied No obvious problems with randomization No patterns in the residuals vs. block Can also plot residuals versus the pressure (residuals by factor) These plots provide more information about the constant variance assumption, possible outliers

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Other Aspects
The RCBD utilizes an additive model – no interaction between treatments and blocks Treatments and/or blocks as random effects Missing values What are the consequences of not blocking if we should have?

The Randomized Complete Block Design– Other Aspects
Sample sizing in the RCBD? The OC curve approach can be used to determine the number of blocks to run..see page 133

The Latin Square Design
These designs are used to simultaneously control (or eliminate) two sources of nuisance variability Those two sources of nuisance factors have exactly same levels of factor to be considered A significant assumption is that the three factors (treatments, nuisance factors) do not interact If this assumption is violated, the Latin square design will not produce valid results Latin squares are not used as much as the RCBD in industrial experimentation

The Latin Square Design
The Latin square design systematically allows blocking in two directions In general, a Latin square for p factors is a square containing p rows and p columns. Each cell contain one and only one of p letters that represent the treatments.

Other Topics Crossover design
p treatments to be tested in p time periods using np experiment units. Ex : 20 subjects to be assigned to two periods First half of the subjects are assigned to period 1 (in random) and the other half are assigned to period 2. Take turn after experiments are done.

Other Topics Crossover design ANOVA

Graeco-Latin Square For a pxp Latin square, one can superimpose a second pxp Latin square that treatments are denoted by Greek letters.

Graeco-Latin Square If the two squares have the property that each Greek letter appears once and only once with each Latin letter, the two Latin squares are to be orthogonal and this design is named as Graeco-Latin Square. It can control three sources of extraneous variability.

Graeco-Latin Square ANOVA

In the rocket propellant problem, batch of material, operators, and test assemblies are important. If 5 of them are considered, a Graeco-Latn square can be used.
