The Contour Profiler Report

The initial Contour Profiler report shows a contour profiler plot, factor settings and controls, and response settings and controls. The colored lines on the graph are the contours for the responses set by the Y slider controls or by entering values in the Contour column. There is a separately colored contour for each response. For each contour, there is a dotted line in the direction of higher response values, so that you get a sense of direction. To change the factor assignments to the horizontal and vertical axes of a contour plot, click the red triangle on the axis and select a factor. If you select the factor that is on the opposite axis, the factor assignments are interchanged.
