Hey guys,

I just started using DoE and Minitab and my first project is to design an 3?-experiment.

Repeating each three times I get a total of 3?x3 = 81 experiments to perform. Problem is that I only have 48 slots and it takes 6 months for one run.

What would be the right approach to optimize my DoE? I need all main effects and can't really exclude any possible interactions except for the three factor one (ABC). Minitab is apparently able to create an optimal design based on different key factors, but how do I know if this design gonna give me the desired information after I have performed the experiment?

I attached the full factorial design.

Happy for every piece of advice
