    Software for calculating general fractional factorial design?

    Hi guys,

    I'm wondering if any of you know a computer software that can perform general (multi-level) fractional factorial design (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fractional_factorial_design)?

    I've looked at Axiom Eigenmath Mathomatic Maxima PARI/GP Reduce Sage Yacas, Macsyma Maple Mathcad Mathematica, none of them seem to to do it. MatLab only does
    2-level designs.

    So, is there any software that can do a genearl FFD?

    Thanks a lot.

    I used JMP last year. It's a subset of SAS.

    Thanks a lot! I will check it out!

    Well. JMP is commercial ... bummer. Does any one here have a copy?

    Minitab and Designease

    I have used both minitab and designease to successfully run experimental designs of many types. I have also used excel but don't know where I put that spreadsheet or I would upload it.

    ^^ Hi, thanks so much for the reply. I haven't got a windows machine at the moment, so I cannot try the trial version, but would you be able to tell me if minitab could do a full fractional factorial design of a 6^5 problem? More specifically, my problem has 5 factors, each factor has 6 possible values. Given the limited resources, I can only afford less than 100 runs. I'd be very grateful if you could check with minitab on whether it can do this problem.

    Thanks a lot.

    I just played around with the trial version of mintab, and no, it does not do general fractional factorial design.

    I checked out the feature of design-easy 6 and 7, and no, they don't say anything about general fractional factorial design either.

    Thanks anyway!
