Question on 3D-Contour Diagram in Minitab

Hey guys,

I have done an experiment with three different factors on three different levels. I entered the information into the reponds and would like to create a diagram, which shows all three factors and the respond as a 3D contour,
similar to the 2D contour diagram I managed to find, but in three dimensional plane.

Is this possible in Minitab? The only thing I found so far is A,B and Y in one, but not all four.

I hope I made myself clear.



A B C Responds (Y)

8 6 50 7,2
8 6 75 6,8

The only way to do it using contour plots is to plot Y against A & B, then against A & C then against B & C.

However, it is unnecessary to all of these as B is the only factor that is statistically significant. A simple main effects plot is sufficient.

Hmm thats too bad. Would have been interesting to see the change of respond depending on all three factors in one graph. I just asked because even Microsoft Excel is able to do that.

But considering that this isn't possible I have another question. In case of the 2D-Graphes for example A vs B showing Y in different colours, what happens to C in this case? Which value does Minitab use of factors not being displayed?

Minitab allows you to specify at what level C is held constant. I believe that the default level is the mid point of the three levels.

I am curious as to how Excel can display three factors and an interaction in a single graph.

Excels approach to display all four dimensions is similar to the one of Minitab in case of the 2D graphes. The x, y and z axes represent the Factors A,B and C. The fourth dimension (Responds) is shown by the use of different colors.
