When an experimental design is selected, the DOE/Opt system examines the block to determine which inputs have been selected to vary, and to determine the input defaults and limits. Based on the design a run table is generated (or added to) with empty slots for each of the outputs to be calculated. The run table can then be executed in total or incrementally to fill in missing elements. The run table may be edited after its creation and before executing the block, so that the user has control over the simulation run value, and can delete or add new run table rows to eliminate or perform other simulations. After execution, the run table can be examined using interactive data visualization methods. In the current implementation we interface to the xgobi package, an interactive dynamic graphics program which is effective in the exploration and visualization of multivariate data . Finally, response surface models can be automatically generated from the run table.
