Goal is to Minimize Y

Specifies that the goal of the analysis is to minimize the response. By default, the analysis seeks to maximize the response.

Note: The response is specified in a second data table, not in the data table used to launch the platform.

Data Format

The data for Process History Explorer must be specified in two data tables. The first table is used to launch the platform and contains the steps and details of the process. The second table contains the response, or yield, for each level of the ID columns.

The sample data tables Quality Control > Lot Wafer History and Quality Control > Lot Wafer Yield provide an example of how the data are specified in two data tables.
