Title:Order-of-Addition Modeling

Lecturer:Prof. Robert Mee,University of Tennessee

Time:2018.5.17,10:00-11:30 AM


Invited by:Prof.Hui Bu


Since Van Nostrand (1995), the literature on order-of-addition studies has generally relied on main effects models constructed from pair-wise ordering (PWO) factors. This talk reviews that literature and proposes an extension to Van Nostrand’s model by adding interactions of PWO factors to explain variation that is best accounted for by the ordering of sets of three or more components. An example is given where five cancer drugs were applied to tissue samples in 40 different sequences. That is, 40 of the possible 5! = 120 sequences were studied in a lab setting. From these 40, we build a model to predict which of the 120 possible sequences would perform best. The talk includes how to select subsets of sequences to efficiently estimate order-of-addition models. The talk will conclude by asking for suggestions of order-of-addition applications in business.
