MSA Design Options

The MSA Design red triangle menu contains the following options:

Save Responses

Saves the information in the Responses panel to a new data table. You can then quickly load the responses and their associated information into most DOE windows. This option is helpful if you anticipate reusing the responses.

Load Responses

Loads responses that you saved using the Save Responses option.

Save Factors

Saves the information in the Factors panel to a new data table. Each factor’s column contains its levels. Other information is stored as column properties. You can then quickly load the factors and their associated information into most DOE windows.

Note: It is possible to create a factors table by entering data into an empty table, but remember to assign each column an appropriate Design Role. Do this by right-clicking on the column name in the data grid and selecting Column Properties > Design Role. In the Design Role area, select the appropriate role.

Load Factors

Loads factors that you saved using the Save Factors option.

Save Constraints

(Unavailable for some platforms) Saves factor constraints that you defined in the Define Factor Constraints or Linear Constraints outline into a data table, with a column for each constraint. You can then quickly load the constraints into most DOE windows.

In the constraint table, the first rows contain the coefficients for each factor. The last row contains the inequality bound. Each constraint’s column contains a column property called ConstraintState that identifies the constraint as a “less than” or a “greater than” constraint. See ConstraintState.

Load Constraints

(Unavailable for some platforms) Loads factor constraints that you saved using the Save Constraints option.

Set Random Seed

Sets the random seed that JMP uses to control actions that have a random component. These actions include one or more of the following:

initializing search algorithms for design generation

randomizing Run Order for design construction

selecting a starting design for designs based on random starts

To reproduce a design, enter the random seed that generated the design before clicking Make Design.

Note: The random seed associated with a design is included in the DOE Dialog script that is saved to the design data table.
