Focus on the summary to the position on which type of DOE situation represented in the case reflected simultaneously using variables associated with factors keyed to producing the same quality as conventional bread dough. In assumption, the first phase must involved the listing of viable company's requirements as well as the targeted consumers preferences in attributes ranging from flavor, appearance, and overall ideal bread. Thus, the statistical method is listing the current framework of ingredients for frozen bread to the nonfreezing ingredients - that more than likely contributed towards testing alternatives.

In the statistical method option, the quantitative assessment honed on selecting key recipe ingredients in more acceptable emergent ...
