The input variables change depending upon the process settings you have selected. The values in the process settings are then imported into the DOE Builder, where they are listed as the Middle Value. The DOE Builder assigns a range around the Middle Value, which you can change to make it wider or narrower. Profile data is also imported into the DOE Builder from the Process Settings. This data can only be changed in the process settings. However, Xmax, Xmin, Ymax and Ymin can all be edited in the DOE Builder.
The input variables that appear in the Variables tab are controlled by the original process settings and the ranges that they may have, to determine the quality of a molding.
Design of Experiment (DOE) enables you to see the effect of some intervention on the quality of the part. The input variables are the interventions. For example, you can change the melt temperature, or coolant inlet temperature, and see the effect on part quality.
The processing conditions include those variables associated with the actual production of the part.
Boundary conditions include those variables that define how the heat transfer conditions between the mold and the material are modelled.
Geometry refers to those variables associated with the physical design of the part, such as thickness.
