Response Information

Responses are the quality characteristics being measured at each run in the experiment. These must be numeric, and the values must be sensitive enough to reflect changes in the process or product as the run conditions are changing.

Entering Information About Your Responses

Continuous is used for a standard measured response.

Proportion is used when the response is similar to fraction defective.

The number of responses is virtually unlimited. The pull-down list allows you to enter up to 999 responses. If you need more than this, you can manually add responses after building your design by clicking on a Response column header and choosing Insert Response. To enter response details right-click the column header and choose Edit Info or go to the Column Info Sheet view.
