Abstract: Identifying active location and dispersion effects is an important issue at the early stage of a quality improvement process. After understanding the various impacts of factorial effects on the system response, a quality engineer can improve the system performance by adjusting the levels of identified factors. We will introduce a new testing procedure for screening active location effects from partially replicated two-level factorial designs. In addition, a two-stage procedure will be introduced for integrating the analyses of location and dispersion effects. Some numerical examples will be presented for illustrating the proposed method.
