Second-order sub-array Cartesian product split-plot design
Fisher (1926) laid down the fundamental principles of design of experiments: factorization, replication, randomization, and local control of error. In industrial experiments, however, departure from these principles is commonplace. Many industrial experiments involve situations in which complete randomization may not be feasible because the factor level settings are impractical or inconvenient to change, the resources available to complete the experiment in homogenous settings are limited, or both. Restricted randomization due to factor levels that are impractical or inconvenient to change ...
