Function to create multi-level binary replacement (MBR) design (Martens et al., 2010). The MBR approach was
developed for constructing experimental designs for computer experiments.
MBR makes it possible to set up fractional designs for multi-factor problems
with potentially many levels for each factor. In this package
it is mainly called by the `mbrdsim`

function.

`l2levels` |
A vector indicating the number of log2-levels for each factor. E.g. |

`fraction` |
Design fraction at bit-level. Full design: fraction=0, half-fraction: fraction=1, and so on... |

`gen` |
list of generators at bit-factor level. Same as generators in function FrF2. |

`fnames1` |
Factor names of original multi-level factors (optional). |

`fnames2` |
Factor names at bit-level (optional). |

The MBR design approach was developed for designing fractional designs in multi-level multi-factor experiments,
typically computer experiments. The basic idea can be summarized in the following steps: 1) Choose the number of levels *L*
for each multi-level factor as a multiple of 2, that is *L \in \{2, 4, 8,...\}*. 2) Replace any given multi-level factor by a
set of *ln(L)* two-level "bit factors". The complete bit-factor design can then by expressed as a *2^K* design where *K*
is the total number of bit-factors across all original multi-level factors. 3) Choose a fraction level *P* defining av fractional
design *2^{(K-P)}* (see e.g. Montgomery, 2008) as for regular two-levels factorial designs. 4)
Express the reduced design in terms of the original multi-level factors.

`BitDesign` |
The design at bit-factor level (inherits from FrF2). Function |

`Design` |
The design at original factor levels, non-randomized. |
