Procter & Gamble Executive to Present at Quality Expo

Tom Lange, Associate Director at Procter & Gamble, will present "Why is Reliability and Quality Important to P&G?" at Quality Expo International on April 16, 2003, 1:30-2:30 pm.

Over the past decade, Procter & Gamble has been challenged with maintaining reliable manufacturing systems that enable the production of inexpensive per-use products of superior quality and value. It is critical to accurately predict reliability of new systems and integrate new technology at a faster and better pace. P&G worked with JMP, a business unit of SAS, to automate an innovative approach that has saved P&G over $1 billion across more than 100 factories. Today this technology is marketed by P&G as a product called PowerfactoRE.

Visual Statistics: A Review of JMP 5

Review from Scientific Computing & Instrumentation

JMP is statistical software for exploratory data analysis, general and sophisticated statistical testing, and experimental design. Its richly visual graphic environment makes it an excellent tool for students, statisticians, scientists, and engineers. It has found widespread use in both academe and industry due to its gentle learning curve, automatic graphics and breadth of capabilities. The program runs on Windows 98 or higher and Mac OS Classic 9.1 or higher, and this review was written using the Windows version. READ MORE

JMP Live Web Class Expanded to Three Hours

JMP Tip: Automatic Subsetting

You have a large table full of data, but want to do further analysis on a sample represented by a bar in your histogram chart. You can easily do this using Automatic Subsetting.

Just double-click on any bar in your chart and the data automatically appears in a separate data table. You can also select multiple bars and right-click in Windows or control-click on Mac to select Subset from a submenu. This function works for continuous and categorical variables. For more information on the Subset command, refer to the JMP User's Guide.
