Screening experimental designs allow you to study a very large number of factors in a very limited number of runs. The objective is to focus on the few factors that have a real effect and eliminate the effects that are not significant. This is often the initial typical objective of any experimenter when a DOE (design of experiments) is performed.

## Table of Factorial Designs

Consider the table below. In Minitab, you can quickly access
this table of factorial designs by selecting **Stat > DOE
> Factorial > Create Factorial Design...** and
clicking "Display Available Designs." The table tells us the...
