Split-Plot Optimal Combined designs are used when mixture components are in the same experiment as process factors and/or other independent mixtures. The split-plot nature of these designs can handle hard-to-change mixtures where a single batch is made. They can also work with hard to change process factors. Combined experiments are very complex and usually require many runs.
At least one of the following must be set to something other than 0 to proceed.
Mixture 1 Components: The number of components in a single mixture
Mixture 2 Components: The number of components in a second, independent mixture
Numeric Factors: The number of numeric factors
Categoric Factors: The number of categoric factors
Details about the components and factors are entered on succeeding screens.
