The Screening 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.

Simulate Responses

Adds response values and a column containing a simulation formula to the design table. Select this option before you click Make Table.

When you click Make Table, the following occur:

– A set of simulated response values is added to each response column.

– For each response, a new column that contains a simulation model formula is added to the design table. The formula and values are based on the model that is specified in the design window.

– A Model window appears where you can set the values of coefficients for model effects and specify one of three distributions: Normal, Binomial, or Poisson.

Note: Not all distributions are available for all design types.

– A script called DOE Simulate is saved to the design table. This script reopens the Model window, enabling you to re-simulate values or to make changes to the simulated response distribution.

Make selections in the Model window to control the distribution of simulated response values. When you click Apply, a formula for the simulated response values is saved in a new column called <Y> Simulated, where Y is the name of the response. Clicking Apply again updates the formula and values in <Y> Simulated.

For additional details, see Simulate Responses.

Note: You can use Simulate Responses to conduct simulation analyses using the JMP Pro Simulate feature. For more information and DOE examples, see Simulate in Basic Analysis.

Save X Matrix

Saves the Moments Matrix and Model Matrix to table scripts in the design data table. These scripts contain the moments and design matrices. See Save X Matrix.

Caution: For a design with nominal factors, the Model Matrix saved by the Save X Matrix option is not the coding matrix used in fitting the linear model. You can obtain the coding matrix used for fitting the model by selecting the option Save Columns > Save Coding Table in the Fit Model report that you obtain when you run the Model script

Suppress Cotter Designs

Excludes Cotter designs from the Design List. This option is selected by default. Deselect it to show Cotter designs in the Design List.

Note: You can set a preference to always show Cotter designs. Select File > Preferences > Platforms > DOE and deselect Suppress Cotter Designs.

Number of Starts

(Available only for Main Effects Screening Designs.) Specify the maximum number of times that the algorithm regenerates entire designs from scratch, attempting to optimize the final design.

Design Search Time

(Available only for Main Effects Screening Designs.) Specify the maximum number of seconds spent searching for a design. The default search time is 15 seconds.

If the iterations of the algorithm require more than a few seconds, a Computing Design progress window appears. The progress bar displays Chi2 Efficiency. See Chi-Square Efficiency. If you click Cancel in the progress window, the calculation stops and gives the best design found at that point.

Note: You can set a preference for Design Search Time. Select File > Preferences > Platforms > DOE. Select Design Search Time and enter the maximum number of seconds. If an orthogonal array is found, the search terminates. In certain situations where more time is required, JMP automatically extends the search time.

Number of Column Starts

(Available only for Main Effects Screening Designs.) Specify the maximum number of times that the algorithm attempts to optimize a given column before moving on to constructing the next column. The default number of column starts is 50. See Main Effects Screening Designs.

Save Script to Script Window

Creates the script for the design that you specified in the Screening Design window and places it in an open script window.
