Description/Abstract

Missing observations can occur even in a well-planned experiment. The effect of missing observations can be much more serious when the design is saturated or near saturated. The levels of factor settings that make a design more robust to missing observations are of great importance in the sense that the loss for missing observations becomes minimum. In this study, new augmented pairs minimax loss designs are constructed, which are more robust to one missing design point than the augmented pairs designs presented by Morris (2000). New designs are compared with augmented pairs designs, central composite designs, and small composite designs under generalized scaled standard deviations. The model used is also studied for the regression coefficient estimates.
