A Box-Behnken Design: The Tennis Ball Example
The Bounce Data.jmp sample data file has response surface data inspired by the tire tread data described in Derringer and Suich (1980). The objective of this experiment is to match a standardized target value (450) of tennis ball bounciness. The bounciness varies with amounts of Silica, Silane, and Sulfur used to manufacture the tennis balls. The experimenter wants to collect data over a wide range of values for these variables to see if a response surface can find a combination of factors that matches a specified bounce target. To follow this example:
1. Select DOE > Response Surface Design.
2. Load factors by clicking the red triangle icon on the Response Surface Design title bar and selecting ...
