Some applications of weighing designs

Open access


The purpose of this paper is to apply results on weighing designs to the setting of 2m factorial designs. Using weighing designs, we give some proposals for experimental plans. Relevant counterexamples are indicated. Also the results of a simulation study on the existence of weighing designs are presented.
