Designing Drug Development

Engineering firm NNE Pharmaplan uses DOE to optimize production processes in pharmaceutical companies.

A famous article in The Wall Street Journal expressed it this way: "Pharmaceutical manufacturing techniques lag far behind those of potato chip and laundry-soap makers." The need for streamlined production processes has become more important than ever.

Join Dick De Veaux for a Seminar on Visual Data Mining

JMP presents a complimentary seminar, "Instant Insight: Interactive and Visual Data Mining with JMP," featuring Dick De Veaux, August 28, in Dallas.

Data mining is the exploration and analysis of large data sets, by automatic or semiautomatic means, with the purpose of discovering meaningful patterns. These patterns, or rules, are then used for decision making via a process known as knowledge discovery. Much exploratory data analysis and inferential statistics concern the same problems. What's different about data mining? What's similar? We will attempt to answer these questions by looking at a series of case studies using tools typically found in the data miner's toolbox.

New from SAS® Publishing: "Elementary Statistics Using JMP®"

Learn how to perform basic statistical analyses from Elementary Statistics Using JMP. This reader-friendly guide bridges the gap between statistics texts and JMP documentation. Author Sandra Schlotzhauer opens with an explanation of the basics of JMP data tables, demonstrating how to use JMP for descriptive statistics and graphs. The author continues with a lucid discussion of fundamental statistical concepts, including normality and hypothesis testing. Using a step-by-step approach, she shows analyses for comparing two groups, comparing multiple groups, fitting regression equations, and exploring contingency tables. For each analysis, the author clearly explains assumptions, the statistical approach, the JMP steps and results, and how to make conclusions from the results.

Dow Chemical Heralded for Use of Visual BI

The June issue of Manufacturing Business Technology talks about smart global manufacturing.

Crystal balls may be the stuff of myth, but for Tim Rey, leader of the data mining and modeling group at Midland, Mich.-based Dow Chemical, assessing the future is serious business.

"We sell into practically every global market," says Rey. "It pays for us to monitor macroeconomic forces."

Dow operates 156 sites in 37 nations, resulting in $46 billion in annual revenue. With that much volume, any one of thousands of variables can adversely influence profits. Rey's job is to use business intelligence (BI) to stack the odds in Dow's favor. Software from JMP and SAS help him do just that.
