We consider the problem of obtaining locally D-optimal designs for factorial experiments with binary response and k qualitative factors at two levels each. Yang, Mandal and Majumdar (2011) considered this problem for 22 factorial experiments. In this paper, we generalize the results for 2k designs and explore in new directions. We obtain a characterization for a design to be locally D-optimal. Based on this characterization, we develop efficient numerical techniques to search for locally D-optimal designs.
