Overview for Analyze Definitive Screening Design

Use Analyze Definitive Screening Design to analyze a designed experiment. You can analyze your design after you create or define a screening design and add at least one response column in your worksheet.

For example, a group of engineers wants to investigate the effects of 7 factors on the power output of an ultrasonic cleaner. After the engineers collect the data, they enter the response data in an empty column in the worksheet and analyze the design.


The sections that follow are about definitive screening designs. For more information on the analysis of a Plackett-Burman screening design in Minitab, go to Overview for Analyze Factorial Design
