Statistical Considerations in Design Space Development (Part III of III)
In the final article of a three-part series, the authors discuss how to present a design space and evaluate its graphical representation.


Pharmaceutical Technology
Volume 34, Issue 9, pp. 52-61

* For continuity throughout the series, Figures and Tables are numbered in succession. Figure 1 and Table I appeared in Part I of this article series. Figures 2–8 and Table II appeared in Part II.

** "Factor" is synonymous with "x," input, variable. A process parameter can be a factor as can an input material. For simplicity and consistency, "factor" is used throughout the paper. "Response" is synonymous with "y" and output. Here, "response" is either the critical quality attribute (CQA) or the surrogate for the CQA. For consistency, "response" is used throughout the paper.
