Tips and Tricks

This tip starts with you already designing and analyzing an experiment. You have one response (Yield) and three factors (Time, Temperature, Pressure). Once you have run your experiment, you can fit the model from the saved Model script in the JMP data table. Once this analysis is complete, you can create and embed the Profiler from this experiment.

1. Click the red triangle next to Response Yield and select Save Columns Prediction Formula. This action will save the prediction formula to your JMP data table.

2. Return to your JMP data table and you will notice the last column is labeled Pred Formula Yield.

You can change the name of this column multiple ways. The easiest is to double-click the name in the Columns panel and change the name. The name did not change for this demonstration.

3. From the menu bar, select Graph Profiler.

4. Select Pred Formula YieldY, Prediction Formula. Select OK.

5. Click the red triangle next to Profiler Save for Adobe Flash Platform (.SWF).

6. Name your file (I named my file “Test”). Select Save.

The box next to “Create Companion HTML file” and “Open companion HTML file after save” will be selected as default. This setup automatically creates and saves an HTML version of your flash file. JMP automatically launches a window containing the HTML file that was generated. Close this window.

7. Open your PowerPoint 2007/2010 presentation. Go to the slide on which you would like to embed the JMP Profiler.

8. On the PowerPoint 2007/2010 toolbar, select Developer ð More Controls (its icon looks like a hammer and wrench).

9. Scroll down and select Shockwave Flash Object. Select OK. Place and size the box for the profiler.

10. Right click on the box. Select Properties. Under “Alphabetic” find Movie. Provide the location and name of the flash file (in this example, the location and name is C:\Documents and Settings\herush\Desktop\Test.swf).

11. Close the scrolling menu (upper right hand corner).

12. Go back to your PowerPoint 2007/2010 slides, select Slide Show (versus Normal or Slide Sorter) and, as Terrell Owens would say, “Get your popcorn ready!”
