Execute the archetypoid algorithm repeatedly. It is inspired by the `stepArchetypes`

function of the archetypes R package.

1 | ```
stepArchetypoids(numArchoid,nearest="cand_ns",data,ArchObj)
``` |

`numArchoid` |
Number of archetypoids. |

`nearest` |
Initial vector of archetypoids for the BUILD phase of the archetypoid algorithm. This initial vector contain the nearest individuals to the archetypes returned by the |

`data` |
Data matrix. Each row corresponds to an observation and each column corresponds to an anthropometric variable. All variables are numeric. |

`ArchObj` |
The list object returned by the |

A list with the following elements:

*cases*: Anthropometric cases (final vector of `numArchoid`

archetypoids).

*rss*: Residual sum of squares corresponding to the final vector of `numArchoid`

archetypoids.

*archet_ini*: Vector of initial archetypoids (*cand_ns*, *cand_alpha* or *cand_beta*).

*alphas*: Alpha coefficients for the optimal vector of archetypoids.

It may be happen that `archetypes`

does not find results for *k* archetypes. In this case, it is not possible to calculate the vector of nearest individuals and consequently, the vector of archetypoids. Therefore, this function will return an error message.

#COCKPIT DESIGN PROBLEM:
#As a toy example, only the first 25 individuals are used.
USAFSurvey_First25 <- USAFSurvey[1:25, ]
#Variable selection:
variabl_sel <- c(48, 40, 39, 33, 34, 36)
#Changing to inches:
USAFSurvey_First25_inch <- USAFSurvey_First25[,variabl_sel] / (10 * 2.54)
#Data preprocessing:
USAFSurvey_preproc <- preprocessing(USAFSurvey_First25_inch, TRUE, 0.95, TRUE)
#For reproducing results, seed for randomness:
#suppressWarnings(RNGversion("3.5.0"))
#set.seed(2010)
#Run archetype algorithm repeatedly from 1 to numArch archetypes:
#This is a toy example. In other situation, choose numArch=10 and numRep=20.
