# Experiment At The Run Order Or Not

6. Performing the Experiment: While performing the experiment we have to be careful whether we are performing the experiment according to the run order or not. In order to avoid the error, we rechecked the settings for every run and then we performed that run. To run the experiment effectively, we ran some trial runs such that we got an idea of how to perform the experiment and how to take the readings minimizing the errors. After performing the experiment, the values were recorded in the table, obtained from Minitab as shown below.

From the Table 7.1, it was observed that the curvature was non-significant as its p value was greater than the alpha value (α = 0.05). Now, we have two procedures to follow one is steepest ascent method and another is differentiating the regression equation with respect to the factors and equating them to zero gives us the values of each factor. The regression equation was obtained from the coded coefficients table and was written below. In the regression equation, only the significant factors were considered and those factors were filtered using ANOVA result and Half normal plot.
