# Minitab 15 - Factorial Design - 3 factors: 4x3x2 - How to?

H

I am trying to make a factorial design with 3 factors;

Factor 1 - no. of variables 4
Factor 2 - no. of variables 3
Factor 3 - no. of variables 2

I am just new to Minitab. and not good at Stats.

Can anybody plz let me know - How to make factorial design with 3 factors (4x3x2)

Did you mean number of levels = 4, 3 & 2? If you did, you will need to use the General full factorial.

I have 3 factor..
Factor 1 has 4 points (2.0, 1.0, 0.5, and 0.2)
Factor 2 has 3 points (0.5, 0.1, and 0)
Factor 3 has 2 points (5 and 30)

How to make the design?
