In multiple y optimization in a profiler, each y requires it's own desirability function/response goal (max, min, target). But to combine them into a single desirabililty function you have to assign an Importance value to each y. The default value = 1. How does this work? What is the scale?

Thanks, in Advance,

Steve

Solution

The importance does not NEED to be assigned, since the default is 1. However, the importance is just that: importance. So you can determine the scale. Suppose you have Y1 and Y2. If Y1 has an importance of 1 and Y2 has an importance of 2, then Y2 is twice as important as Y1. You would get exactly the same result if you specified importances of 0.5 and 1, 4 and 8, 100 and 200. The scales are relative.
