this function compares Variance Dispersion Graph of two response surface designs with the same number of factors on the same scale

Description

This function calls the function Vardsgr which uses Vining's (1993) fortran code to get the coordinates of a two variance dispersion graph, and then makes the plot.

Usage

1
Compare2Vdg(des,des2,name1,name2,ncolleg)

Arguments

des

des is a matrix or a data frame containing the first response surface design to be compared in coded or uncoded units. There should be one column for each factor in the design, and one row for each run in the design. The maximum number of rows allowed is 99, and the maximum number of columns is 7.

des2

des2 is a matrix or a data frame containing the second response surface design to be compared in coded or uncoded units. There should be one column for each factor in the design, and one row for each run in the design. The maximum number of rows allowed is 99, and the maximum number of columns is 7.

name1

name1 is a character string containing a descriptive name for the first design. This descriptive name should be no more than 40 characters in order to fit in the space for a legend. If left out name1 defaults to des

name2

name2 is a character string containing a descriptive name for the second design. This descriptive name should be no more than 40 characters in order to fit in the space for a legend. If left out name2 defaults to des2

ncolleg

The number of columns in the legend this can be 1 or 2

Value

vdgpl

vdgpl

This is a graph containing the two Variance Dispersion Graphs, one for each design

Note

This function calls the function Vardsgr to get the coordinates for the plot.
