Make breakthrough improvements to your product and process with Design-Expert software. Screen for vital factors and components, characterize interactions and, ultimately, achieve optimal process settings and product recipes. Set flags and explore contours on interactive 2D graphs; then visualize the response surface from all angles with rotatable 3D plots. Finally, maximize desirability for all your responses simultaneously and overlay them to see the “sweet spot” meeting all specifications. Design-Expert makes it incredibly easy to apply powerful multifactor testing tools.
New Release: Version 12!
- The new release of Design-Expert includes many new additions to its design, analysis, and visualization components. All done while keeping our intuitive and easy-to-use interface intact.
Design Your Experiment
Design-Expert provides powerful tools to lay out an ideal experiment on your process, mixture or combination of factors and components. When in doubt, build it stout via in-line power calculations and the ability to add blocks and center points. Design-Expert’s design wizards and intuitive layouts such as the stoplight configuration for two-level factorials make it all far easier than you’d even imagine. Check it out!
Analyze Your Data
Design-Expert makes it easy to see what, if anything, emerges as statistically significant and how to model the results most precisely. It provides the confidence you need to present and, perhaps, publish your findings. Don’t take our word for it, test it out with one or more of the data sets that come with the software.
Visualize Your Results
Design-Expert offers a wide selection of graphs that help you identify standout effects and visualize your results. Its outputs create a strong impression when you communicate your findings to supervisors and peers. Download the free trial today, skim through the response surface tutorial provided under ‘Help’, and see for yourself.

Version 12 of Design-Expert® is centered around the long awaited Logistic Regression analysis option, which allows you to analyze data that are binary in nature (true or false, zero or one, pass or fail). In addition, we have added a few new general plotting tools, improved the legend, and moved more graphs into a notebook (multi-pane) view.
Here are the highlights:
- Responses with binary data (every cell is a 0 or 1) will have a Logistic Regression option on the Transform tab.
- Chi-squared tests for logistic regression model term significance.
- McFadden, Adj. McFadden, and Tjur pseudo-R-squared statistics are available for logistic regression.
- Binary responses can be optimized using criteria based on the probability of success or failure.
- Model Graphs have been moved to a notebook interface.
- You can create multiple graphs simultaneously in side by side views.
- All graphs now have a dockable legend that can be moved independently of the graph.
- The legend can also be docked to the right or bottom of the graph via the right-click menu.
- Elements in the legend can be toggled individually via the right-click menu.
- The font size of the legend can be increased or decreased by hovering over it, holding control, and using the mouse scroll wheel.
- A histogram of any column of data can be generated in the Graph Columns node.
- You can set a third axis on the Graph Columns scatterplot to make it into a 3d scatterplot.
- Effects graphs have been moved to a notebook interface and can be compared side by side.
- The Cube plot can now be toggled between observed and predicted values.
- Pairwise comparisons when clicking on a point in Interaction or One Factor plots are now available in a separate toolbox.
- Categoric variables can now use Treatment contrasts, which compares each level to a user-selected control, or reference level.
- Helmert contrasts are also available, which compares each level to the mean of the previous levels.
- Ordinal contrasts no longer need to be numeric. If they are not numeric they are assumed to be evenly-spaced (e.g. “Low”, “Medium”, “High”).
- The choice of contrast types for categoric factors is shown in the ANOVA.
- Kowalski-Cornell-Vining (KCV) models are available as a Model Order choice.
- KCV models provide a more efficient alternative to a full crossed model when building.
- KCV models can be selected during the analysis as well.
