Creating a better iced tea with design of experiments

My wife is a huge fan of tea – to the extent that our kitchen has two shelves dedicated to it. For a recent family gathering, she wanted to clear out some tea by making a large batch of iced tea (i.e., to allow more room in the cupboard to buy […]

Finding the best process operating conditions using 2 optimisation approaches

Scientists and engineers often need to find the best settings or operating conditions for their processes or products to maximise yield or performance. I will show you how the optimisation capabilities in JMP can help you work out the best settings to use. Somewhat surprisingly, the particular settings that are […]

Coming in JMP Pro 12: Four great features of Covering Arrays

Covering arrays are a powerful design tool that may be used to design test cases to efficiently test deterministic systems. For such systems, a particular input will always generate the same output and, as a result, standard statistical designs are usually inefficient. It turns out that failures in these systems […]

JMP for ethanol producers

I recently presented at a webinar on "The Power of Data: Harnessing Ethanol Plant Information for Increased Profitability." This talk followed on the heels of an article, "Putting Data to Work," in Ethanol Producer Magazine in December. The article discussed JMP use at Phibro Ethanol Performance Group, Heron Lake Bioenergy […]

Which Belgian beer tastes best? A designed experiment

During the The Scale-Up of Chemical Processes conference in Brussels earlier this year, the organizers and I decided to do an experiment using JMP. Of course, the experiment had to involve beer tasting! We had 24 participants for the experiment. We used eight Belgian beer brands for testing and planned […]
