I am trying to get a screening design of PlackettBurman using 7 factors.
The “Display Available Designs…” tab says that for 7 factors, we will need 8 runs.
Yet when I go to the next “Designs…” tab then the number of runs available are at least 12!
8 runs is not even an option here.
Thus, when design is generated, it has 12 runs for those 7 factors.
Why does Minitab give 8 available runs when we have to run at least 12 anyway?
