Abstract

Computers have radically changed work on design. As the chores involved in construction and analysis have dwindled, statisticians have been able to concentrate on achieving the flexibility that is needed to meet scientists' urgent requirements. A paradigm of the gains that are now available is provided by recent design work for cereal-variety trials in the United Kingdom. Many techniques and principles originating in that context might be applicable to other areas of science. Burgeoning mathematics for constructing incomplete-block designs ensures that the tools for their wider use are to hand. /// L'apparition des ordinateurs a radicalement modifié l'approche de la planification d'expérience: comme les difficultés associées à la construction et à l'analyse des données ont diminué, les statisticiens ont pu concentrer leurs efforts sur la flexibilité qui est impérativement requise pour répondre aux exigences scientifiques. Un modèle des avantages qui sont disponibles aujourd'hui est le travail récent sur la planification des essais pour les variétés des céréales dans le Royaume Uni. Beaucoup des techniques et des principes qui tirent leur origines dans ce contexte peuvent être applicables ailleurs en science. Le développement des mathématiques pour la construction des blocs incomplets garantit la disponibilité des moyens à l'utilisation plus large de ces dernières.
