Design & Analysis of Experiments Startup Panel

Ribbon bar. Select the Statistics tab. In the Industrial Statistics group, click DOE to display the Design & Analysis of Experiments Startup Panel.

Classic menus. From the Statistics - Industrial Statistics submenu, select Experimental Design (DOE)  to display the Design & Analysis of Experiments Startup Panel.

The Startup Panel contains two tabs: Quick and Advanced.

After choosing any of the designs other than the last two options on the Advanced tab, you can elect either to generate a design or to analyze a data set. Designs can be displayed in spreadsheets, and you can randomize the runs of the experiment (within blocks where appropriate). Blank columns can be added to the spreadsheets; thus, you can print the spreadsheets to use as convenient data entry forms. Once generated, all designs can be saved to a standard STATISTICA data file (in standard or randomized order); after appending the actual (observed) data from the experiment to those data files, they can easily be analyzed using this program. See also Experimental Design.

OK. Click the OK button to display a dialog box corresponding to the analysis method selected on the Quick or Advanced tab.

Cancel. Click the Cancel button to close the Startup Panel without performing an analysis.

Options. See Options Menu for descriptions of the commands on this menu.

Open Data. Click the Open Data button to display the Select Data Source dialog box, which is used to choose the spreadsheet on which to perform the analysis. The Select Data Source dialog box contains a list of the spreadsheets that are currently active.

Select Cases. Click the Select Cases button to display the Analysis/Graph Case Selection Conditions dialog box, which is used to create conditions for which cases will be included (or excluded) in the current analysis. More information is available in the case selection conditions overview, syntax summary, and dialog box description.

W. Click the W (Weight) button to display the Analysis/Graph Case Weights dialog box, which is used to adjust the contribution of individual cases to the outcome of the current analysis by "weighting" those cases in proportion to the values of a selected variable.
