Abstract : Many experimental situations require consideration of a large number of factors. For example, computer simulation studies frequently characterized by the inclusion of an exceptionally large number of input variables. Because of resource limitations, there is often a need in such situations for an efficient method of factor screening. One possible screening strategy is two-stage group screening. This report attempts to examine the performance characteristics of two-stage group screening experiments as a function of a constant signal-to-noise ratio for all important factors. The effect of group-factor cancellation on performance is also investigated. (Author)
