Dear JMP® User,

Discovery Summit 2012 is right around the corner, taking place Sept. 10-13. At the conference, you’ll have multiple opportunities to interact with JMP developers and a roster of top-notch speakers, including economist and author Ian Ayres. I mean, check out this agenda! How could you afford to miss it? It’s taking place at SAS headquarters in Cary, NC, at the new Executive Briefing Center. To make the most of your visit, be sure to register for pre- and/or post- conference training.

I have some big news for project leaders: JMP Training recently launched a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Project Leader training course. This course emphasizes breakthrough improvement projects and enables attendees to lead any project, regardless of the methodology that is used. It is offered in three different learning formats. Contact our sales reps to learn more.

Be sure to stop and say hello at Discovery Summit 2012.

Best regards,
Brooke Fortson

Blogger's Corner

My husband and I have spent a lot of time watching the Tour de France this week. The speed and power these athletes show going up mountains never ceases to amaze me. My family has a tradition of riding in the MS150 bike race every year in New Bern, NC; 75 miles, two consecutive days. If you have never heard of New Bern, it is near the coast and has an extremely flat topography. The only hill we climb during the race is the bridge going over the Neuse River (about half a mile) heading back toward the finish line. That one tiny hill doesn’t even compare to what these guys are facing in France. I wouldn’t make it 45 seconds up those mountains on the tour! Kudos to the Tour de France cyclists. Ian Cox recently blogged about the race – take a look!

Tips and Tricks

JMP 9 introduced add-ins. These allow you to add new capability to JMP yourself, and distribute this capability to other users. An add-in might be a simple, special-purpose tool, or it might be an entirely new and sophisticated application. It appears in the new Add-Ins menu or in a custom location of the JMP menu as determined by the developer.

You must script JMP in order to make an add-in. An add-in is merely a collection of JMP files (scripts, data tables) that work together. It is now easier for a scripter to make an add-in with JMP 10, because it introduced the Application Builder and Add-In Builder that work in tandem. You can also find add-ins at the JMP website, or perhaps you know colleagues who have made some useful add-ins. You can add or remove add-ins easily.

For example, I found a useful utility to transform numeric columns by Sam Gardner on the JMP website. Look for the File Exchange under Resources for Users. I downloaded the add-in archive and then extracted its contents, which includes a descriptive Readme file and the add-in. I opened the add-in with JMP.

In this case, Gardner placed the add-in in the Cols menu.
