The final design points can be obtained by using the default MaxPro (maximum projection) optimality criterion or by selecting the Centroid criterion. You can find these options under FFF Optimality Criterion in the report’s red triangle menu.
For p factors and n equal to the specified Number of Runs, the MaxPro criterion strives to find points in the clusters that minimize the following criterion:
Note: You can set a preference to always use a given optimality criterion. Select File > Preferences > Platforms > DOE. Check FFF Optimality Criterion and select your preferred criterion.
Note: Depending on the number of factors and the specified value for Number of Runs, you might want to increase the average number of initial points per design point by selecting Advanced Options > Set Average Cluster Size.
Once you complete the Factors outline, click Continue. The Define Factor Constraints outline appears. Use this outline to restrict the design region. For details about the outline, see Define Factor Constraints.
Note: Depending on the nature of the constraints and the specified Number of Runs, the default coverage of the unconstrained design space by the initial randomly generated points might not be sufficient to produce the required Number of Runs. In this case, you might obtain a JMP Alert indicating that the algorithm “Could not find sufficient number of points.” To increase the initial number of points that form the basis for the clustering algorithm, specify a larger average number of initial points per design point by selecting Advanced Options > Set Average Cluster Size. (See Set Average Cluster Size).
When you use the Specify Linear Constraints option, the random points that form the basis for the clustering algorithm are randomly distributed within the constrained design region. The clustering algorithm uses these points.
