primary_scale_types


Choose a scaling type for each response

Specification

Alias: objective_function_scale_types

Argument(s): STRINGLIST

Default: no scaling

Description

The primary_scale_types keyword specifies one or number of primary functions strings indicating the scaling type for each response value in methods that support scaling, when scaling is enabled. If only one type is specified, it will apply to each prinary response function.

See method-scaling for details on how to use this keyword.

Note that primary response functions (objective, calibration, or response functions) cannot be automaticaly scaled due to lack of bounds, so valid scale types are 'none' 'value' and 'log'.

If scaling is specified, it is applied before multi-objective weighted sums are formed.
