Compare Designs

Compare and Evaluate Designs Simultaneously

The Compare Designs platform compares up to four designs to a reference design. Use to explore, evaluate, and compare design performance. Diagnostics show how the designs perform relative to each other and how they perform in an absolute sense. To compare designs relative to your specific needs, you can change the terms in the assumed model and in the alias terms list.
