Minimum aberration designs are preferred in practice, especially when it is desired to carry out a multi-factor experiment using less number of runs. Several authors considered constructions of minimum aberration designs. Some used computer algorithms and some listed good designs from the exhausted search. We propose a simple method to obtain minimum aberration designs for experiments of size less than or equal to thirty-two. Here, we use an ordered sequence of columns from an orthogonal array to design experiments and blocked experiments. When the method is implemented in MS Excel, minimum aberration designs can be easily achieved.
