Honeywell International – Aerospace Division

JMP Scripting Language (JSL) and Design of Experiments (DOE) help Honeywell save time and produce highly reliable devices

Since 1995, the Design Engineering department of Defense and Space Electronic Systems (DSES), part of Honeywell’s Aerospace Division, has utilized the rich feature set of JMP to meet and exceed productivity goals. This unit is the world’s premier supplier of sensors for commercial and military aircraft, spacecraft, locomotives, and oil well navigation.

Precision sensors, such as thermal switches and accelerometers, control temperatures and track the movement of high value equipment (i.e. satellite applications, international space station, spacecraft, etc.). Accelerometers enable navigation in aircraft while thermal switches perform auto de-icing of aircraft wings, for example. For each of these vital instruments, JMP helps Honeywell optimize the design of the device for increased product efficiency. READ MORE

JMP Client-Server Configuration for Windows

JMP provides your organization with the best desktop data analysis and exploration solution in the market. As part of this solution, JMP strives to provide you with deployment options that meet your organizational needs.

One option available to JMP users on Windows is the client-server configuration. You may want to consider this deployment option if:

The client-server configuration on a Windows network provides you with one central location for your JMP installation.

New JSL Script Available in the JMP Script Library

We've recently added a new script to the JMP Script Library, ProtectedLSD. This script oversees an ANOVA and subsequent Means Comparison procedure. It was developed for a large manufacturing company. They originally implemented a scheme in SAS that set up multiple comparisons in two stages, following the method known as "Fisher's Protected Least Significance Difference."

This script and many others are available in the JMP Script Library free of charge to users who have registered their software.

JMP Tip: View Notes When Opening a JMP Data Table

Want to see details about your data tables without having to open each one? You can do this easily by changing the file format when using the Open command in Windows or Macintosh Classic OS  (Mac OS X does this automatically).

Select "JMP Data Tables" as the file type. As you scroll JMP files, the number of rows, columns, and display text you placed in the Notes Table Variables are displayed in the Open window. Adding Notes to your data tables is a great way to quickly identify them. READ MORE
