> Yes, you're right. For, say, a 3 x 5 design, one can do this in as few as
runs -- but only in general by some version of one-factor-at-a-time (OFAT)
designs, which are inefficient.  It is easy, via, say model.matrix() to
write a general function to produce these. But I think it's a bad idea; more
efiicient algorithmic designs are better, IMO, which is why I suggested
AlgDesign. You and others are free to disagree, of course.

Hi Bert,
thanks for your suggestion.
However, let us say that i need a 2x2x2x3x3x3 design, which should not be
too hard.
I've loaded AlgDesign, and i am aware now that gen.factorial allows me to
create a full desing. But how to create a main-effects-only factorial design
I am still not able to produce what i need. The function
model.matrix.formula is not very clear... :(

Could you please indicate which syntax should i use? I'd really appreciate
your help.

Thanks in advance,
