Implementing Six Sigma: Are You Getting Results Fast Enough?

This paper was presented by Kristin Nauta, JMP Director of Sales and Marketing, at the International Conference on Polyolefins 2004, February 24, in Houston, TX

Six Sigma focuses on high return projects that will maximize 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 your mouse? Can you easily find relationships among numerous variables without sorting through pages of p-values? Do your designed experiments provide the maximum information using the minimal resources? The presentation covers concepts you typically donít learn in analytics training and presents techniques that shorten your journey from question to answer. READ MORE

JMP Tip: JMP Interactive Graphs in Action

This tip is a fun and unique way to demonstrate JMP's graphical interactivity. Open the cereal.jmp data table from the Sample Data folder. Click Analyze -> Multivariate Methods -> Multivariate. Select Calories, Protein, Fat and Sodium as Y columns, click OK. Click on the brush tool in the toolbar. Click inside one of the display windows on the graph. Hold down the ALT key (Windows and Mac) or SHIFT-ALT (Linux) and change the shape of the brush. Now you can brush back and forth and see all the interactivity of the data.

Bonus! Hold down the CTRL-SHIFT-ALT (Windows & Linux) or APPLE-OPTION-SHIFT (Mac) keys and "throw" the brush (click, drag, and release in a particular direction). The brush will move automatically.
