Split-split-Plot analysis

Description

The variance analysis of a split-split plot design is divided into three parts: the main-plot, subplot and sub-subplot analysis.

Usage

ssp.plot(block, pplot, splot, ssplot, Y)

Arguments

block

replications

pplot

Factor main plot

splot

Factor subplot

ssplot

Factor sub-subplot

Y

Variable, response

Details

The split-split-plot design is an extension of the split-plot design to accommodate a third factor: one factor in main-plot, other in subplot and the third factor in sub-subplot. The model is mixed, the blocks are random and the study factors are fixed applied according to the design.

Value

ANOVA: Splip Split plot analysis
