Source: The data come from experiments carried out at the Golden Leaf Biomanufacturing Training and Education Center (BTEC) of North Carolina State University. We use them to teach an introductory three-day DoE class for which we use JMP and laboratory hands-on activities.
Motivation: The data refer to a replicated 2x2x2 factorial experiment. They can be used as a first full factorial experiment to introduce the attendees to several concepts. In particular one factor and all the interactions in which it is involved are not significant so it can be used to introduce the concepts of projection and hidden replication.
In particular, attendees carry out the real experiment in the laboratory at BTEC so they design, execute and analyze the experiments. This helps in understanding the concepts of designing, physical constraints, randomization etc..
