How does Lighthouse calculate the number of expanded tasks for DCM?

Can you please provide an example?

Could you please clarify whether you are seeing expanded tasks due to Dual-Response None inclusion, or constant sum responses?  The examples would be different.

Hi Bryan, Thanks for your prompt response!

I am referring to the expanded tasks in the context of dual response DCM.
I remember having seen a number ~=5, 200 expanded tasks. For some reason, the results which I saved after DCM estimation do not seem to have recorded the above number.

In my design, there are 9 attributes, 2 to 6 levels per attribute. In the estimation, I am applying a few constraints, all within levels of the same attribute. For example, lower price is more preferred.

Will look forward to your guidance on how to reconcile the above ~5,200 number with the design.
