Title: A Simple Criterion for Model-Robust Designs
Author(s): Steven Gilmour*+ and Pi-Wen Tsai
Companies: University of Southampton and National Taiwan Normal University
Address: School of Mathematics, Southampton, SO17 1BJ, United Kingdom
Keywords: factorial design ; response surface ; model selection

One reason that methods for model-robust designs are not widely used is that every problem is different, so that designs need to be robust to many different models in different applications. The Q_b criterion allows many different models to be considered and, by using a simple approximation to A-efficiency, is computationally very easy to calculate. I will argue that the future for model-robust design lies in such simple criteria.
