<p>Improving the quality of a product/process using a computer simulator is a much less expensive option than the real physical testing. However, simulation using computationally intensive computer models can be time consuming and, therefore, directly doing the optimization on the computer simulator can be infeasible. Experimental design and statistical modeling techniques can be used to overcome this problem. This article reviews experimental designs known as space-filling designs that are suitable for computer simulations. In the article, a special emphasis is given for a recently developed space-filling design called maximum projection design. Its advantages are illustrated using a simulation conducted for optimizing a milling process.</p>
