Use the Profiler, Contour Profiler, or Surface Profiler to gain further insight into the fitted model. To select a profiler option, click on the red triangle menu next to Loglinear Variance Fit and select one of the options under the Profilers menu.
For example, suppose that the goal was to find the factor settings that achieved a target of 31 for the response, but at the smallest variance. Fit the models and choose Profiler from the report menu. For example, Prediction Intervals shows the Profiler set up to match a target value for a mean and to minimize variance.

Because the variance of the individual prediction contains the variance of the distribution of Y, the effects of the changing variance for Y can be seen. Not only are the individual prediction intervals wider, but they can change shape with a change in the variance effects.
