This paper presents a comprehensive research on the application of the Design of Experiments approach to explore engineered complex systems to reveal potential detrimental weak emergent behavior. The proposed methodology utilizes orthogonal arrays in combination with regression analysis to systematically explore the parameter space of a specific system function. By screening and investigating system boundaries and potential pain points, this research introduces a novel use of orthogonal arrays to effectively detect and map areas within a system's parameter space that does not comply with defined functional acceptance criteria. The findings demonstrate that this approach enables a systematic exploration of engineered complex systems to reveal inherent detrimental weak emergent behavior, thereby enhancing test coverage, expanding system knowledge, and facilitating mitigation efforts.
