I am new in design of experiment field. I now is having problem in deciding which approach of DOE i should use in my project. I got 4 factors with each 3 levels. So which approach i should use?

For the approach, normally you would determine what model you want to fit, and then choose a design that allows you to fit that model. Sometimes, you can't do all the necessary runs (3**4=81 runs in your case) in which case you would have to consider fractionating the design.

The number of replicates depends on the precision you want for your estimates, and again the number of runs you can afford.

This is all covered in great detail in many standard textbooks on design of experiments. It's far too complex and detailed to really cover in an internet forum.

Here is one such book (but there are many that cover this topic)

i had read some journal on it and most of the journalist are using the Full factorial experimental design,which is 2**k ~ if I wish to use that, I will have to run 81 runs right?

if I wish to fractionating it, the runs I should make is which formula ? 2***(k-1)?

You have three level factors, and you have four of them. That's 3**4=81 runs for a full factorial. A fractional factorial would be 3**(4–k) where k=1 or k=2.

Again, you need to know what model is being fit here, or you can't really determine what to do.

Response output : Actual output of a model product

Input factor : Buffer capacity

Failure time of machine

Number of operator

Number of machine

each factor are 3 levels

in this case I should consider fractional? if like that how to determine the k in fractional design?
