Abstract: A methodology for the design of an experiment is proposed in order to find asmany schemes as possible with the maximum number of factors with different levels for thesmallest number of experimental runs. An algorithm was developed and homemadesoftware was implemented. The abilities in generation of the largest groups of orthogonalarrays were analyzed for experimental runs of 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 15, and 16. The resultsshow that the proposed method permits the construction of the largest groups of orthogonalarrays with the maximum number of factors.
