Create/Edit Output Responses

on December 23, 2015


1. Output Number is provided for reference purposes. (To switch to a different output cell, click cancel, select the output cell and click Output Response.)

2. Output Name is the cell address by default. Enter a name to describe the output or click the cell reference cell_reference.jpgand specify the cell containing the output name. DiscoverSim Names must be alphanumeric with no spaces. The underscore character "_" can be used as a separator. After specifying a cell reference, the dropdown symbol changes from cell_reference.jpg to cell_reference2.jpg.

3. Output cell color can be modified by clicking on Cell Address. (Default colors can be changed in Help > DiscoverSim Options).  Click here for detailed instructions on changing cell colors.

4. Function displays the output cell equation. The equation can also be changed in this field.

5. LSL is the Lower Specification Limit; USL is the Upper Specification Limit for the output. Entry is optional for simulation but required to produce Process Capability Indices. LSL and USL are also used as the lower and upper bounds for the desirability function in multiple response optimization. Specification limits can be manually entered or click the cell reference cell_reference.jpgand specify the cell containing the specification value.

6. Include in Optimization, Weight and Output Goal are not used for simulation - they are optional output settings used for multiple response optimization. If Include in Optimization is unchecked this output will not be considered for optimization. Note that the Output Goal (Target, Maximize or Minimize) is specific to each output. For example, if Output 1 is production rate, the goal would be set to maximize, whereas Output 2, cost, would have a minimize goal. For further details, see Run Optimization.
