N2 - Experiments usually aim to study how changes in various factors affect the response variable of interest. Since the response model used most often at present in experimental design is expressed through the effect of each factor, it is straightforward to ascertain how each factor affects the response variable. However, since the response model contains redundant parameters, we must calculate the degrees of freedom defined by the number of independent parameters in the analysis of variance. In this paper, we show that through a description of experimental design based on an orthonormal system, the response model can be expressed using only independent parameters. Hence, we do not have to calculate the degrees of freedom defined by the number of independent parameters.
