This paper reexamines five papers published in a special edition of Human Facotrs, August 1973, attempting to explain and illustrate the characteristics and applications of central-composite designs in the context of response-surface methodology. A detailed analysis is provided to show that the experimental papers 1 fail to illustrate the most important and useful features of response surface methodology designs as proposed by G.E.P. Box and his associates 2 employ questionable procedures not specific to RSM that permit interpretations of results not considered by the investigators and 3 do not constitute an experimental evaluation of the effectiveness of RSM central-composite designs as suggested by the investigators.
