Hello Unmet,

Is there a reason that the Design of Experiments algorithm is not working? I keep receiving the following error when I attempt to leverage this technique in a PAT Algorithmic Mode. Thank you for any insight.

[1] "starting doe" Error in library(DoE.base) : there is no package called 'DoE.base'

Please try the 2.7.1 installer. I can't remember if fix related to that was made in the app or just in the server. You could first just try updating the server you use, but it it may take a new installer.

Try 2.7.1. 2.7.0 had an issue where an R dependency snuck thru the testing framework. This was corrected in PR

Hello Brian et al. So I switched my AMI to the "2.7.1 -- Not Recommended" and I have been able to use the Design of Experiments algorithm again. Thank you.
