Interactive Demonstrations of Statistical Concepts Using JMP

The following from the Interactive Demonstrations of Statistical Concepts Using JMP workshop presented by Dr. Mark Bailey at the Joint Statistical Meetings. The documentation and sample JSL scripts are available on the JMP website.

Statistical science is profound and often counter-intuitive. Rigorous mathematical presentations of these theories may be correct and complete but essential ideas may be lost on the students. The most important principles of the theory may not be conspicuous through traditional teaching materials. Computer technology can make a theory more understandable and the lessons more compelling. In addition to simulation and statistical data visualization, computer animation and interactivity make the ideas come alive. READ MORE


JMP Software: A Qt Customer Success Story

Developed by JMP, a business unit of SAS, JMP software dynamically links statistics with graphics and allows users to visualize, interactively explore, and discover relationships in their data. This capability speeds and enhances data analysis for business process improvements, scientific research, product design and development, and manufacturing. The JMP solution also has widespread use in organizations that are intent on achieving Six Sigma performance levels.

So successful was JMP on the Windows® and Macintosh® platforms that executives decided to port it to Linux®. "We needed to find a class library that would be compatible with our existing architecture," recalls Richard C. Potter, Senior Software Manager for JMP. JMP's existing code base is approximately 500,000 lines of code. READ MORE
