Design And Analysis Of Experiments With R

Concepts and application of analysis of variance to experimental data, including blocked, nested, factorial and split plot designs, and repeated measures. Covers the concepts of fixed and random effects, multiple comparisons, analysis of covariance. Participants learn how to design and evaluate complex field and laboratory experiments with open-source software packages. Prerequisite: knowledge equivalent to REN R 581 and REN R 582 is required.

It never hurts to go back to basics before tackling more complex things. The purpose of this post is to give a brief overview of the basics of design of experiments, their analysis and how to present results using R and packages like ggplot2 and agricolae. Included are one- and two-factor experiments.

The design of experiments (DOE) deals with the planning and performance of tests with the objective of generating data. Statistical analysis of these data will provide objective evidence that will allow the researcher to resolve questions about a given situation, process or phenomenon.

The different values assigned to each factor studied in an experimental design are called levels. A combination of levels of all the factors studied is called a treatment or design point. In the case of experimenting with a single factor, each level is a treatment.

The aov function is used for the analysis of factorial designs. Previously, it is recommended to convert the factor values into the factor class and then perform the analysis. Here I going to analyze our first design (one_fct_dgn):

To visualize the results of this type of experiments, bar graphs are usually used, whose height represents the magnitude of each mean, together with error bars representing the standard deviation and letters showing the significant differences established by the multiple comparisons test:

For a blocked design we want the \(t\) experimental units within each block should be as homogeneous as possible (as similar as possible, so that there is unlikely to be unwanted variation coming into the experiment this way). The variation between blocks (the groups of experimental units) should be large enough (i.e., blocking factors different enough) so that conclusions can be drawn. Allocation of treatments to experimental units is done randomly (i.e., treatments are randomly assigned to units) within each block.

This task view collects information on R packages for experimental design and analysis of data from experiments. With a strong increase in the number of relevant packages, packages that focus on analysis only and do not make relevant contributions for design creation are no longer added to this task view. Please feel free to suggest enhancements, and please send information on new packages or major package updates if you think they belong here. Contact details are given on my Web page .

Experimental design is applied in many areas, and methods have been tailored to the needs of various fields. This task view starts out with a section on the most general packages, continues with specific sections on agricultural and industrial experimentation, computer experiments, and experimentation in the clinical trials contexts, and closes with a section on various special experimental design packages that have been developed for other specific purposes. Of course, the division into fields is not always clear-cut, and some packages from the more specialized sections can also be applied in general contexts. You may also notice that my own experience is mainly from industrial experimentation (in a broad sense), which may explain a somewhat biased view on things.

There are a few packages for creating and analyzing experimental designs for general purposes: First of all, the standard (generalized) linear model functions in the base package stats are of course very important for analyzing data from designed experiments (especially functionslm(),aov() and the methods and functions for the resu
