Space Filling Design Flow
Responses Outline
Tip: When you have completed your Responses panel, consider selecting Save Responses from the red triangle menu. This saves the response names, goals, limits, and importance values in a data table that you can later reload.
The name of the response. When added, a response is given a default name of Y, Y2, and so on. To change this name, double-click it and enter the desired name.
 ‒ A Goal of Maximize indicates that the best value is the largest possible. If there are natural lower or upper bounds, you can specify these as the Lower Limit or Upper Limit.
 ‒ A Goal of Minimize indicates that the best value is the smallest possible. If there are natural lower or upper bounds, you can specify these as the Lower Limit or Upper Limit.
 ‒ A Goal of Match Target indicates that the best value is a specific target value. The default target value is assumed to be midway between the Lower Limit and Upper Limit.
 ‒ A Goal of None indicates that there is no goal in terms of optimization. No desirability function is constructed.
 • Double-click a response to edit the response name.
 • Click the goal to change it.
 • Click on a limit or importance value to change it.
 • For multiple responses, you might want to enter values for the importance weights.
Factors Outline
Tip: When you have completed your Factors panel, select Save Factors from the red triangle menu. This saves the factor names and values in a data table that you can later reload. See Space Filling Design Options.
The name of the factor. When added, a factor is given a default name of X1, X2, and so on. To change this name, double-click it and enter the desired name.
 • To edit a factor name, double-click the factor name.
 • Categorical factors have a down arrow to the left of the factor name. Click the arrow to add a level.
 • To remove a factor level, click the value, click Delete, and click outside the text box.
 • To edit a value, click the value in the Values column.
Click Add to enter one or more linear inequality constraints.
Select factors from the Add Filter Factors list and click Add. Then specify the disallowed combinations by using the slider (for continuous factors) or by selecting levels (for categorical factors).
To remove a single factor, select Delete from its red triangle menu.
 ‒ Blocks Display shows each level as a block.
 ‒ List Display shows each level as a member of a list.
 ‒ Single Category Display shows each level.
 ‒ Check Box Display adds a check box next to each value.
 ‒ Clear Find clears the results of the Find operation and returns the panel to its original state.
 ‒ Match Case uses the case of the search string to return the correct results.
 ‒ Contains searches for values that include the search string.
 ‒ Does not contain searches for values that do not include the search string.
 ‒ Starts with searches for values that start with the search string.
 ‒ Ends with searches for values that end with the search string.
Enter the expression (Exp(X1) + 2*X2 < 0) & (X3 == 2) into the script window.
