Design of experiments for Python

Project description

The pyDOE package is designed to help the scientist, engineer, statistician, etc., to construct appropriate experimental designs.


The package currently includes functions for creating designs for any number of factors:

  • Factorial Designs
    1. General Full-Factorial (fullfact)
    2. 2-level Full-Factorial (ff2n)
    3. 2-level Fractional Factorial (fracfact)
    4. Plackett-Burman (pbdesign)
  • Response-Surface Designs
    1. Box-Behnken (bbdesign)
    2. Central-Composite (ccdesign)
  • Randomized Designs
    1. Latin-Hypercube (lhs)

See the package homepage for details on usage and other notes

What’s New

In this release, an incorrect indexing variable in the internal LHS function _pdist has been corrected so point-distances are now calculated accurately.


  • NumPy
  • SciPy

Installation and download

See the package homepage for helpful hints relating to downloading and installing pyDOE.

Source Code

The latest, bleeding-edge but working code and documentation source are available on GitHub.


Any feedback, questions, bug reports, or success stores should be sent to the author. I’d love to hear from you!
