AS 600 ADVANCED DESIGN OF EXPERIMENTS                       (1L+1P) I
(Pre-requisite : AS 564)

Objective
This is an advanced course in Design of Experiments that aims at describing some advanced level topics for students who wish to pursue research in Design of Experiments. This course prepares students for undertaking research in this area. This also helps students for applications of this important subject to agricultural sciences.

Theory

UNIT I
Partially balanced incomplete block designs with two associate classes - properties, analysis and construction.

UNIT II
Resolvable block designs and their application: alpha designs, lattice designs. Multiple comparison procedures.

UNIT III
Fractional replication of symmetrical factorials. Asymmetrical factorials: construction and analysis of balanced confounded designs. Response surface designs, second order rotatable designs.

Practicals
Overview of MS-EXCEL, SAS, SPSS, SPBD Release 1.0, SPFE 1.0. Analysis of block designs, Analysis of Latin square type designs, group divisible designs, triangular designs, lattice designs. Analysis of fractional replications of factorial experiments, analysis of asymmetrical factorials and block designs with factorial structure. Analysis of second order response surface designs.
