Abstract

Kronecker product of matrices can be advantageously used to obtain three-associate class partially balanced incomplete block (PBIB) designs from two-associate class PBIB designs, for a larger number of treatments. This method has been described here and two such series of PBIB designs are obtained. If the experimenter is constrained of resources, theses designs can be used as an alternative to balanced incomplete block designs or 2-associate class partially balanced incomplete block designs. 

Keywords
