Response surface methodology is widely used for developing, improving, and optimizing processes in various fields. A rotatable simplex design is one of the new designs that have been suggested for fitting second-order response surface models. In this article, we present a method for constructing weighted second order rotatable simplex designs (WRSD) which are more efficient than the ordinary rotatable simplex designs (RSD). Using moment matrices based on the Simplex and Factorial Designs, and the General Equivalence Theorem (GET) for D- and A- optimality, weighted rotatable simplex designs (WRSDs) were obtained. A- and D- optimality criterion was then used to establish the efficiency of the designs.
