The estimation of the variance components of a response surface model for a
Split-plot design has been of much interest in recent years. Different techniques
are available for estimating these variance components that includes REML, a
bayesian approach, the replication of the center point runs and a randomization
based approach. The available numbers of degrees of freedom is also an
important issue when estimating these variance components. In our talk, we
will present an algorithm for generating a D-optimal Split-plot design such that
the generated design has a required number of degrees of freedom for estimating
the variance components using the randomization based approach. One advantage
of using this approach is that it gives pure error estimates of the variance
components.
