=====================================================
``pyDOE``: The experimental design package for python
=====================================================

The ``pyDOE`` package is designed to help the 
**scientist, engineer, statistician,** etc., to construct appropriate 
**experimental designs**.

Capabilities
============

The package currently includes functions for creating designs for any 
number of factors:

- *Factorial Designs*

  #. **General Full-Factorial** (``fullfact``)

  #. **2-level Full-Factorial** (``ff2n``)

  #. **2-level Fractional Factorial** (``fracfact``)

  #. **Plackett-Burman** (``pbdesign``)

- *Response-Surface Designs* 

  #. **Box-Behnken** (``bbdesign``)

  #. **Central-Composite** (``ccdesign``)

- *Randomized Designs*

  #. **Latin-Hypercube** (``lhs``)
  
*See the* `package homepage`_ *for details on usage and other notes*

What's New
==========

In this release, an incorrect indexing variable in the internal LHS function
``_pdist`` has been corrected so point-distances are now calculated accurately.

Requirements
============

- NumPy
- SciPy

Installation and download
=========================

See the `package homepage`_ for helpful hints relating to downloading
and installing pyDOE.
