In this paper, we list some new orthogonal main effects plans for three-level designs for 4, 5 and 6 factors in 18 runs and compare them with designs obtained from the existing L 18, orthogonal array. We show that these new designs have better projection properties and can provide better parameter estimates for a range of possible models. Additionally, we study designs in other smaller run-sizes when there are insufficient resources to perform an 18-run experiment. Plans for three-level designs for 4, 5 and 6 factors in 13 to 17 runs are given. We show that the best designs here are efficient and deserve strong consideration in many practical situations.
