Analysis of Dispersion Effects in Fractional Factorial Two-Level Designs
In factorial designs that are used in the development of new products or in other applications the response Y frequently has unequal variances depending on the factor levels. The response can be written as a function Y = f(x), where x = (t′, Z′), entails all factors influencing Y. t denotes the treatment, i. e. the levels of the controllable factors (design factors), while Z denotes the levels of the (non-observable) random factors. It is assumed that all components of Z are stochastically independent.
