Alternate Title: Communications in Statistics - Theory and Methods
Abstract: This paper examines the performance of three-stage group screening in terms of the mean number of tests needed; and the proportion of active factors correctly detected by the screening plan, A linear cost function is also proposed, To evaluate performance, random grouping and a constant signa1-to -noise ratio for all active factors, are assumed.
