The projection properties of the 2q, mpf ractional factorials are well known and have been used effectively in a number of published examples of experimental investigations. The Plackett and Burman designs also have interesting projective properties, knowledge of which allows the experimenter to follow up an initial Plackett and Burman design with runs that increase the initial resolution for the factors that appear to matter and thus permit efficient separation of effects of interest. Projections of designs into 2-5 dimensions are discussed, and the 12-run case is given in detail. A numerical example illustrates the practical uses of these projections.
