Abstract : The object of this research program has been to evaluate and compare the performance of factor screening procedures for use in computer simulation experiments. Factor screening methods are statistical methods that attempt to identify, efficiently and economically, the set of most important factors. Once the most important factors have been identified, further simulation (or real-world) experimentation can focus on these particular factors. This eliminates experimentation with relatively unimportant factors, which can needlessly consume resources. This report briefly discusses the problem background, summarizes the research goals, and provides a reference list of all technical reports, journal publications, and presentations prepared under this contract.
