Understanding Data Through Visualization

Stephen FewOne of the best ways to understand data is through good data visualization. In a Webcast recorded in July, biz viz expert and author Stephen Few talks about and illustrates the power of visualization for analyzing quantitative business information and spotting trends that may influence business decisions. Few also offers tips on how not to get fooled by trendy uses of graphics.

When Precision Matters, JMP® Shines

SSFSpecialty Silicone Fabricators (SSF), based in Paso Robles, CA, is recognized as one of the world's top-tier manufacturers of silicone products. JMP user Spiro Atieh of SSF knows that precision in the design of a length of tubing inserted into the body for diagnostic purposes, for example, can ultimately be a lifesaving proposition. Fine-tuning measurement systems to ensure the quality of manufacturing processes is Atieh's job. JMP statistical discovery software from SAS is a tool that's seldom far from his fingertips.

Design of Experiments on Demand

Take advantage of a new complimentary Webcast series to see JMP Product Manager Lou Valente outline a case study demonstrating the "why" and "how" of design of experiments (DOE) with JMP. Episode one presents a chemical manufacturing case, using JMP to quickly and successfully identify the best steps to process improvement. Episode two features sequential DOE with the JMP Custom Designer, solving a chemical manufacturing problem more efficiently than the original 32-run design. Valente is a Six Sigma Black Belt with expertise in applying DOE methodology to ensure robust manufacturing processes.

Add Flash Animations to PowerPoint Slides

Bubble Plot FlashYou already know JMP 8 lets you export the Bubble Plot and Profiler as Flash animations. But did you know that you could use freeware to easily embed those interactive graphs into PowerPoint to share in meetings or send to your boss? The JMP Blog reports this useful tip that a JMP user shared with us. In case you need a refresher on how to save the Profiler as Flash in JMP, our blogger covers that, too.

Real-World Experiences in DOE

White Paper A new and innovative approach to design of experiments (DOE) is being used to significantly reduce the number of simulations required to model biological warfare attacks. However, these methods are not specific to the military. They apply to almost any modeling and simulation study involving large numbers of variables with many levels. Co-authors Tom Donnelly of JMP, Erin Shelley of the US Army and Daniel Cinotti of Science Applications International share real-world experiences in this new white paper. See how DOE methods can be used when control variables are categorical and/or continuous.

JMP Offers Campus Workshops

In the past two years, 1,000 professors and students have attended JMP workshops on US college campuses. Our academic team invites professors to schedule a fall workshop on campus. Why? When a university licenses JMP, unlimited numbers of professors and students in the licensing group gain access to this interactive statistical discovery software. We want to arm new professors with the JMP basics needed to teach the statistics covered in their courses. And we want to introduce professors who are already savvy about JMP to new features and capabilities in JMP 8.

Students, License JMP® 8 for Your Very Own

Great news, students! For less than the cost of a concert ticket, you can license JMP 8 for your own personal Mac or PC. SAS is now offering six- and 12-month JMP 8 licenses to post-secondary students. Now you can study stats in cafés, libraries and on the campus quad. These licenses are available exclusively from OnTheHub.com, powered by e-academy.

Getting to the Root of the Problem

When failure occurs, it is imperative to identify the root cause quickly, especially in a manufacturing environment. JMP users like Archana Pawse, PhD -- a Six Sigma Black Belt who has worked for Applied Magnetics, Superconductor Technologies and JDS Uniphase as a Product/Process/Reliability Engineer -- find value in JMP. Pawse saves money and resources by exploring and graphing data in multiple ways to reveal solutions and mitigate waste and inefficiencies. She identifies and explains the three primary JMP features that she uses in a root cause investigation: selecting cells, partition plots and variability charts.
