Dow is upgrading its workforce from JMP to JMP Pro. Everyone who goes through the Six Sigma Green Belt, Black Belt and Master Black Belt programs will be trained in JMP Pro, as will those who take a data mining and modeling class.
JMP Pro contains all the features in the latest version of JMP, plus advanced analytic techniques for data mining and predictive modeling. It combines the power of data visualization, exploratory data analysis and data mining in an in-memory environment made for the desktop.
Dow’s R&D and manufacturing teams use JMP Pro for larger data sets, “the unbalanced kinds of things where you would use more true data mining and predictive modeling … things that weren’t really structured for design of experiment-type modeling,” says Tim Rey, Dow’s Director of Advanced Analytics.
Jeff Sweeney, a Dow Senior Research Statistician, likes JMP Pro’s combination of data visualization and robust analytics. JMP Pro “allows the user to explore data in a very effective and efficient way to extract as much information out of it, as opposed to some other products that I’ve seen on the market that basically provide very static graphics and are not interactive in nature,” Sweeney says.
“It really is that connection between visualization and the statistical and modeling capabilities that differentiates it, in our opinion,” Rey says.
