Kristin Nauta, JMP Director of Sales and Marketing, to Present at International Conference on Polyolefins

February 22-25 at the Wyndham Greenspoint Hotel, Houston

The theme of Nauta's presentation is "Implementing Six Sigma: Are You Getting Results Fast Enough?"

Six Sigma focuses on high-return projects that enhance customer satisfaction. Is every part of your Six Sigma effort providing a maximum return, including your software? Do your graphics come alive, helping you make key discoveries with the click of a mouse? Can you easily find relationships among numerous variables without sorting through pages of p-values? Are your experiments designed to provide the maximum information using the minimal resources? The presentation covers concepts you typically don't learn in analytics training. Techniques shorten your journey from question to answer.
