More Useful Utilities and Reporting Tools
The quality of your data will always be limited by the quality of the measurement system you use. To help you obtain the best data possible, we've introduced three new tools for measurement systems analysis. You can use these tools to evaluate individual measurement systems, and also to compare one to another.
- The Linearity and Bias Folio is used to estimate a device's accuracy (i.e., how close its measurements are to the actual values).
- The Gage R&R Folio is used to estimate the precision of a measurement system (i.e., its ability to deliver the same value when repeatedly used to measure the same part).
- The Gage Agreement Folio analyzes the measurements
from two devices in order to determine whether and how they differ
in terms of both accuracy and precision.
You can attach files to a project to keep related information from external data files together with the rest of the analysis.
Complete Control for Your Plots and Charts
Like all Synthesis applications, DOE++ gives you complete control to configure the appearance of your plot output and provides integrated utilities that make it easy to compare analyses and highlight results of interest. For example:
The Plot Setup allows you to completely customize the "look and feel" of plot graphics, while the RS Draw metafile graphics editor provides the option to insert text, draw objects or mark particular points on plot graphics. You can save your plots in a variety of graphic file formats for use in other documents.
Overlay Plots (formerly called "MultiPlots") make it easy to compare analyses by automatically plotting the results for multiple responses together in the same plot.
Side-by-Side Plots allow you to view and/or print multiple plots for a given data set side-by-side. For example, you might want to show several residuals plots for a single analysis in the same window. This can help you gain insight into how well the model fits the data, whether applying a transformation to the response might be appropriate, potential outlier data points, the presence of additional factors that have not been accounted for, etc.
DOE++'s Report Generator makes it easy to gather all your analysis results in one place. Instead of copying/pasting analysis results by hand, you can use this tool to simultaneously add multiple results associated with a selected design folio.
Like any other spreadsheet in a Synthesis application, DOE++'s reporting tool provides complete in-cell formula support, cell references and over 150 built-in functions. You can type functions directly into cells or use the Function Wizard to build and insert functions with ease; and the integrated Chart Wizard guides you through the steps to create your own graphical charts.
