Which response optimization goal should I use?

When optimizing responses, you must specify whether your goal is to minimize, maximize or meet a target response.
  • Minimize your response when the optimum response is low. If you measure the effect of oil viscosity and temperature on engine wear, you want factor settings to minimize wear.
  • Maximize your response when the optimum response is high. If you measure the yield of process, you want factor settings to produce the highest yield.
  • Target your response when the optimum response is a specific value. If parts must be a certain length, you want factor settings to produce the target length.

If you have multiple responses, you can specify a different goal for each response.
