The Simulator Report Options

The Simulator red triangle menu contains the following options:

Automatic Histogram Update

Toggles the histogram update. When this option is selected, the histograms update with new simulated values when you drag factor setting handles. By default, this option is not selected.

Defect Profiler

(Available only when spec limits are specified.) Shows the defect rate as an isolated function of each factor. See Defect Profiler.

Defect Parametric Profile

(Available when the Defect Profiler is launched.) Shows the defect rate as an isolated function of the parameters of each factor’s distribution. See Defect Parametric Profiler.

N Strata

(Appears only when you hold down the Shift key before clicking the Simulator red triangle menu.) Enables you to specify the number of strata for the Normal Weighted distribution. See Statistical Details for the Simulator.

Set Random Seed

(Appears only when you hold down the Shift key before clicking the Simulator red triangle menu.) Enables you to specify a seed for the simulation starting point. This enables the simulation results to be reproducible, unless the seed is set to zero. The seed is set to zero by default. If the seed is nonzero, then the latest simulation results are output when the Make Table button is clicked.

Simulation Experiment

(Available for Normal, Uniform, and Triangular random distributions.) Runs a designed simulation experiment on the locations of the factor distributions. A window appears that enables you to specify the number of design points, the portion of the factor space to be used in the experiment, and which factors to vary in the experiment. Factors that are not selected for the experiment are set to their current Profiler value. See Simulation Experiment.

Spec Limits

Opens a table to set or edit specification limits for the responses. Click the Save button to save specification limits to the response column properties in the data table. See Specification Limits.
