Analyzing Manning and Brady over the years

If you follow pro football (and probably even if you don't), you know that last night the Denver Broncos beat the New England Patriots to earn their spot in Super Bowl 50. But as if a shot at the Super Bowl wasn't big enough, this game meant even more than […]

I’ve been a huge fan of definitive screening designs from the moment I first read about them. I’ve also been excited by Bradley Jones' new approach for analyzing definitive screening designs. As my second experiment with dyeing toy cars had promising results, it seemed like the right time to better […]

Potato chips and ANOVA, Part 2: Using analysis of variance to improve sample preparation in analytical chemistry

In an earlier blog post, I began a two-part series to examine a proposed sample preparation scheme for measuring the weight percentage of sodium in potato chips.  My first post: Introduced the problem. Entered the raw data into JMP. Standardized the format of the data using Standardize Attributes. Used the Stack […]

Dyeing diecast vehicles redux: The results

Last time, I discussed setting up a new stage of experimentation for dyeing diecast vehicles. Not everything went as planned, but there were some positive results. I took the alias optimal design from the previous blog post and used a column shuffle to randomize the rows (it was sorted by […]

Dyeing diecast vehicles with DOE redux

In a previous experiment, my father and I changed the color of diecast cars by placing them in fabric dye. A recent visit from my father allowed us to undertake the next experiment in our dyeing journey with some new ideas from my colleague Lou Valente. With the information gained […]
