Correlation coefficient of response variances in compound noise and product array experiments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In robust parameter design, a compound noise experiment has been frequently used for reducing the number of experimental runs compared to a product array experiment. However, the results obtained by the compound noise experiment and the product array experiment are often much different. This paper derives an expression of the correlation coefficient of response variances in the compound noise and the product array experiments, which gives an explanation of that difference.
