Department of Defense
The Department of Defense (DoD) uses JMP to fulfill its primary responsibility – to provide the military forces needed to deter war and to protect the security of our country. Its powerful statistical features, visual nature, and point-and-click interface provide quicker answers at lower costs. Take, for instance, the words of a member of the US military who said JMP “worked flawlessly” for him and “was vital” to his day-to-day operations within a war zone. He says that he has used JMP to keep senior leaders informed in weekly briefings. Providing decision makers with easy to understand and visually compelling graphics makes for more informed assessments. DoD employs JMP’s superior problem-solving capabilities in numerous capacities including:
The desktop nature of JMP makes it feasible to do on-the-fly analysis while out in the field.
Create a clear, predictive picture of a process using design of experiments (DOE) methods to get the most information from the fewest experimental trials. DOE helps testers get quicker answers, solve bigger problems and lower costs.
JMP users in the Department of Defense conduct both real experiments and, increasingly, experiments run with sophisticated computer simulations. With either type of experimentation DOE enables users to:
Conduct sensitivity analysis of the tested factors.
Answer “what if...?” questions.
Optimize multiple Measures of Performance (MOP) to make informed trade-offs.
In the case of long-running simulations like Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) – where 10 seconds of simulation of a process may take a day to run on a high-performance computing cluster – DOE can be used to create designs to support a fast (seconds-long), surrogate model of a simulation that requires hours, days or even weeks.
Interactively explore options and visualize complex, multidimensional results with surrogate statistical modeling – without taking hours to run one design or sharing proprietary information.
Lean Six Sigma techniques help users meet and exceed productivity goals and are easily carried out with JMP, which is recommended by the Six Sigma Academy.
High-level statistical analyses like principal components analysis and factor analysis provide flexibility and accountability required in decision making, illustrating available capabilities and resources for meeting readiness and deployment requirements.
A practically unlimited capacity for records puts JMP users at an advantage over Excel users, who are limited to 65,000 rows of data.
Pinpoint and visualize the true drivers of organizational financial performance.
Build accurate predictive models to forecast future performance and explore what-if scenarios to aid decision making.
View, compare and prioritize possible projects in terms of critical criteria such as risk, return and resources.
Analyze appropriate budget performance data to find meaningful trends.
Remain accountable for performance measures with Graph Builder, trend analysis and scorecarding within Strategic Performance Management from SAS.
Conduct cost-benefit analyses by examining patterns of change through time, pointing to break-even points, predicting future events and bringing return on investment.
