On the aberrations of mixed level orthogonal arrays with removed runs
- 35 Downloads
Given an orthogonal array we analyze the aberrations of the sub-fractions which are obtained by the deletion of some of its points. We provide formulae to compute the Generalized Word-Length Pattern of any sub-fraction. In the case of the deletion of one single point, we provide a simple methodology to find which the best sub-fractions are according to the Generalized Minimum Aberration criterion. We also study the effect of the deletion of 1, 2 or 3 points on some examples. The methodology does not put any restriction on the number of levels of each factor. It follows that any mixed level orthogonal array can be considered.
