It is shown in this paper that a quasi order for the vectors in Rp is a cone induced if and only if the order is preservable under limits and under linear combinations with non-negative coefficients. For the mean vectors in MANOVA subject to the restriction of simple ordering, a pseudo restricted MLE is proposed. This estimator is a matrix projection onto a closed convex set inside the restricted domain. An algorithm for the pseudo restricted MLE is developed, that computes the matrix projections using only vector projections.
