Abstract
The paper discusses the similarities and differences between blocking factors (blocked designs) and noise factors (robust designs) in industrial two-level factorial experiments. The discussion covers from the objectives of both design types and the nature of blocking and noise factors to the types of designs and the assumptions needed in each case. The conclusions are as follows: the nature and characteristics of noise and blocking factors are equal or very similar; the designs used in both situ...
