Column Properties

Understanding Column Properties Assigned by DOE

When you construct a design using the DOE platforms, column properties are saved to the data table that contains the resulting design. This appendix provides detail about only those column properties that are saved to designs that the DOE platform constructs. Examples illustrate how each column property is assigned and used by the DOE platforms. Descriptions of column properties not assigned by the DOE platforms are provided in Properties Used in Modeling and DOE in Using JMP.

Some of the column properties described in this appendix are useful in general modeling situations. To use the properties more generally, you can specify them yourself. This ability is particularly useful when your design has not been created by a DOE platform. Some of the examples in this appendix illustrate situations where you add a column property on your own.
