How to Apply Response Surface Methodology
- response surface methodology
This booklet from the ASQ Statistics Division Basic References in Quality Control series describes in a clear, how-to format the fundamental techniques of response surface methodology (RSM). RMS is a set of techniques designed to find the best value of a response and to map the contours of the response surface---in order to gain a better understanding of the overall response system. It makes use of the statistical techniques included in the objects regression and design of experiments. This booklet describes a number of the most-used experimental designs and the subsequent analyses used with the RSM technology.
