Why would you want to use a full factorial design versus a fractional factorial design? In other words, what types of situations are best for full factorial and which ones are best for fractional factorial. Provide an example of type of situation.

A full factorial design is an experiment whose design has two or more factors, whose experimental units take on all likely combinations of these levels across all such factors. In a full factorial design, where all input factors are set at two levels each. The design with all possible combinations of all input factors is called a full factorial design in two levels.

A full factorial design is used where the effect of several factors and even interactions between them needs to ...
