This function looks at all combinations of specified design parameters
for central-composite designs, calculates other quantities such as
the `alpha`

values for rotatability and orthogonal blocking, imposes
specified restrictions, and outputs the best combinations in a specified order.
This serves as an aid in identifying good designs. The design itself can
then be generated using `ccd`

, or in pieces using `cube`

, `star`

, etc.

1 2 3 |

`k` |
Number of factors in the design |

`n.c` |
Number(s) of factorial points in each cube block |

`n0.c` |
Numbers(s) of center points in each cube block |

`blks.c` |
Number(s) of cube blocks that together comprise one rep of the cube portion |

`n0.s` |
Numbers(s) of center points in each star (axis-point) block |

`bbr.c` |
Number(s) of copies of each cube block |

`wbr.s` |
Number(s) of replications of each star poit within a block |

`bbr.s` |
Number(s) of copies of each star block |

`best` |
How many designs to list. Use |

`sortby` |
String(s) containing numeric expressions that are each evaluated and used as sorting key(s).
Specify |

`restrict` |
Optional string(s) containing Boolean expressions that are each evaluated. Only combinations where all
expressions are |

A grid is created with all combinations of `n.c`

, `n0.c`

, ..., `bbr.s`

.
Then for each row of the grid, several additional variables
are computed:

`n.s`

The total number of axis points in each star block

`N`

The total number of observations in the design

`alpha.rot`

The position of axis points that make the design rotatable. Rotatability is achieved when design moment [iiii] = 3[iijj] for i and j unequal.

`alpha.orth`

The position of axis points that make the blocks mutually orthogonal. This is achieved when design moments [ii] within each block are proprtional to the number of observations within the block.

`agreement`

The absolute value of the log of the ratio of

`alpha.rot`

and`alpha.orth`

. This measures agreement between the two`alpha`

s.

If `restrict`

is provided, only the cases where the expressions are all `TRUE`

are kept.
(Regardless of `restrict`

, rows are eliminated where there are
insufficient degrees of freedom to estimate all needed effects for a
second-order model.)
The rows are
sorted according to the expressions in `sortby`

; the default is to sort
by `agreement`

and `N`

, which is suitable for finding designs
that are both rotatable and orthogonally blocked.

A `data.frame`

containing `best`

or fewer rows, and variables
`n.c`

, `n0.c`

, `blks.c`

, `n.s`

, `n0.s`

, `bbr.c`

,
`wbr.s`

, `bbr.s`

, `N`

, `alpha.rot`

, and `alpha.orth`

,
as described above.
