Dear JMP® User,
With a new year comes new courses! I am extremely excited to announce several new courses in the JMP Analyst curriculum. Take a look at our learning path - and all of those “new” tags within the Advanced and Specialty Courses section! Each course either tailors the statistical analysis to a particular organizational role, or goes a little deeper into the statistical concepts so you’ll be able to get the best analysis and most impact from your data.
I want to focus on two of the new courses: JMP Software: Reliability Analysis (one day) and Product Reliability Using JMP Software (three days). Aside from the course length, what’s the difference?
||JMP Software: Reliability Analysis helps engineers and scientists who are familiar with reliability concepts use JMP software to better analyze and plan their reliability studies. This course covers the reliability concepts faster and is better suited to individuals who have used these techniques in the past.
Product Reliability Using JMP Software focuses on helping engineers and scientists who do not routinely perform reliability studies. This course covers the topics at a slower pace and uses more examples to help infrequent data analysts get the most information from their reliability studies.
If your organization would benefit from one of our reliability courses, contact Deborah Upchurch or Sharon Churchill to schedule an on-site course. And don’t forget to check out all of the other new courses we have available!

Realizing the Desired Results of Quality by Design
This course focuses on how to establish a systematic approach to pharmaceutical development that is defined by quality by design (QbD) principles using design of experiments (DOE). In addition, this course teaches the application of statistics for setting specifications, assessing measurement systems (assays), developing a control plan as part of a risk management strategy, and ensuring process control/capability. Public course dates coming soon.

In addition, Rushing has been a symposium speaker at both national and international pharma and medical device conferences. He is an American Society of Quality (ASQ) Certified Quality Engineer and teaches most courses in the JMP curriculum, including a new course on quality by design (QbD) that he developed.

Tips and Tricks
One way to change font sizes in JMP is through the Preferences option. Clicking File -> Preferences -> Fonts will allow you to customize the font size for various parts of JMP.
To change sizes on the fly, as when your audience is obviously having trouble reading your output, just hold down CTRL-SHIFT-plus sign on your keyboard or numeric keypad. JMP will increase all the font sizes one point for each time you press “+.” Impress your audience and make it easier for them to see your data discovery!
You can decrease the font size by holding down CTRL-SHIFT-minus sign, or go back to Preferences and click Reset to Defaults.
Too bad this trick doesn’t work on paperback novels.
