Center point

In the Central Composite design arrays the Levels of the factors are on the edges, center and circumscribed at the center of side.
Red
Edge
Blue
Center point
Green
Circumscribed
In fact it is a Full factorial (
Red dots
) array with center points (
Blue dots
) and extra points circumscribed from the sides (
Green dots
). This array is often used in a RSM to construct a response surface. For each factor are 5 levels required.

Central Composite compared with Box-Behnken

As you can see there are more data point needed compared with a Box-Behnken design. Compared with the Box-Behnken all the factors high or low at the same time will occur (extreme combinations).
With a Central Composite design every factor is having 5 levels compared to Box-Behnken 3.
