I would like to perform a fractional factorial rather than the full factorial method. I want all four factors to have three levels but reduce the number of trials from 81. A Screening design only allows 2-level factors. A Taguchi design allows 3-level factors but doesn't seem to be the right modeling method for my project.

Can a 3x3x3x3 fractional factorial be done using JMP6 or JMP7 to do this?

The fractional factorial you are interested in is indeed the Taguchi 9-run design or the Taguchi 27-run design. These are identical to a standard fractional factorial. No difference. Go ahead, use it without qualms.

I also point out that a central composite design (response surface design) often has better statistical properties than the fractional factorial of a 3**4, and usually involves fewer runs as well.
