"An analysis of variance model is developed to determine if a significant difference exists between various scatter storage techniques. The model is a two-factor hierarchical mixed design with each combination of transformation and search method considered as a treatment. The data used in the analysis is obtained from a computer program which provides statistics on the number of probes needed to load the (k+l)st item into a table for the different treatments. An ANOVA table was then computed for various load factors.
A significant difference among the treatments was detected for load factors above .4. Comparison of individual treatments using Tukey's multiple range test shows that although some treatments are significantly inferior, most treatments are not significantly different in terms of the average number of probes needed to load an item"--Abstract, page ii.
