Qualitative predictor variables, ANOVA, Design of Experiment, New Dimension, Multiple Linear Regression, Randomized Block Designs and Fuzzy Linear Regression



ANOVA also provides a method of data analysis that is motivated by consideration of the experimental design or Design of Experiment (DOE). In this paperwork, a new dimension of the methodology by involving fuzzy regression approach to randomized block designs will be introduced, which is involving qualitative predictor variables under consideration on multiple linear regression. The idea from this research will be a useful thread for establishing comprehensive connectivity between randomized block designs and regression. The researchers can conclude that fuzzy MLR can predict much better compared to MLR itself.
