When you use the DOE platforms to construct a design containing a blocking factor, the factor is assigned the Design Role column property with the value Blocking. JMP also assigns the RunsPerBlock column property to each Blocking factor. The RunsPerBlock property indicates the maximum allowable number of runs in each block. This property is used by the Evaluate Design and Augment Design platforms to indicate the blocking structure for the factor. See Blocking.

Note: The RunsPerBlock column property is assigned by JMP as part of design construction. You cannot directly assign this column property.
