There are typically many, many questions that need to be answered to close the gap in our understanding of Y = f(x) for a given product or process, consider ways in which you can answer these questions in parallel to accelerate your knowledge capture. By definition, multifactor DOEs already accomplish this. But often there are questions about the variation in the measurement system or underlying process or both.
