In modern techniques and science one meets design problems for multi-factor experiments in a large experimental region where the underlying model is unknown. These problems needs space filling designs. The uniform experimental design seeks its design points to be uniformly scattered on the experimental domain and is one kind of space filling designs that can be used for computer experiments and also for industrial experiments when the underlying model is unknown. In this paper we shall introduce the theory and method of the uniform design and related data analysis and modelling methods. Applications of the uniform design to industry and other areas are discussed.
