Simulation enables you to discover the distribution of model outputs as a function of the random variation in the factors and model noise. The simulation facility in the profilers provides a way to set up the random inputs and run the simulations, producing an output table of simulated values.
An example of this facility’s use would be to find out the defect rate of a process that has been fit, and see whether it is robust with respect to variation in the factors. If specification limits have been set in the responses, they are carried over into the simulation output, allowing a prospective capability analysis of the simulated model using new factors settings.
In the Profiler, the Simulator is integrated into the graphical ...
