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 switch is which? Exploring light switches and circuit breakers with covering arrays

When my wife and I moved into our house, one of my first tasks was to swap the old light switches with new ones in frequently used rooms. Once I figured out how it was done, it seemed simple enough: Go to the circuit box, switch the circuit breaker off […]

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 […]

A simple designed experiment with multimillion-dollar results

On Saturday (or Sept. 34), we marked the 25th birthday of JMP, a product I have been using since version 2. Until 2006, I was a JMP customer, even attending the first Discovery Summit conference for JMP users back in 1996. This birthday has made me nostalgic, and I wanted […]

Design and Analysis of Experiments 2015 conference

A long, long time ago, I was a new statistics PhD student attending my first conference. To say I was intimidated is putting it mildly: Top researchers in experimental design and analysis from around the globe were scheduled to be at this conference. How would I be able to talk […]

Why design of experiments keeps the science in science

In a recent discussion in the LinkedIn DOE group, I learned that some scientists resist the use of design of experiments because they believe that using DOE would be "taking the science out of science.” I believe this type of resistance comes from the minds of those who fear change. […]
