JMP 11 provides several powerful new analysis platforms, additions to existing platforms, and JMP Scripting Language (JSL) enhancements
New analysis platforms include the following:
â€¢ A Factor Analysis platform helps describe variability among observed, correlated variables in terms of a potentially smaller number of unobserved or latent variables. Plots and reports give insight on the interpretation of the latent factors.
â€¢ A Response Screening platform was designed to do a large number of simple fits on Ys by Xs across groups, with the purpose of finding strong relationships in the data. The Response Screening platform performs the same
fits as the Fit Y by X platforms, but on a greater scale.
â€¢ A Reliability Block Diagram platform analyzes the reliability of the various elements in a large and complex system.
â€¢ A Definitive Screening Design platform has been added to the Design of Experiments menu. Definitive screening designs are small three-level designs that provide estimates of main effects that are unbiased by second order effects. They also avoid aliasing of second-order effects. By reducing the need for subsequent experiments, these designs can increase the overall efficiency of the experimental process.
â€¢ The Uplift platform helps you identify characteristics of individuals who are likely to respond to an intervention (for example, to optimize marketing decisions). Uplift modeling differs from traditional modeling techniques in that it finds the interactions between a treatment and other variables. It focuses on individuals who are likely to react positively to an action or treatment.
Major additions and changes to existing platforms and menus include the following:
â€¢ A new menu option, Consumer Research, has been created under Analyze to house previous and new platforms (Categorical, Factor Analysis, Choice, Uplift, and Item Analysis).
â€¢ The Categorical platform has been updated with a redesigned launch window and enhanced reports.
â€¢ Attribute and rare event control charts are now available in the Control Chart Builder.
â€¢ More personality options (Response Screen
ing, Generalized Regression, and Mixed Models) and a Multiple Comparisons option have been added to the Fit Model platform.
â€¢ Missing data handling is available in many Fit Model personalities and an improved approach is taken in the Partition platform.
â€¢ More model options and an Analysis of Mean Ranges chart have been added to the Measurement Systems Analysis platform.
â€¢ The Screening Design platform offers a new method that constructs designs that are orthogonal or nearly orthogonal in the main effects.
â€¢ A cluster-based space-filling design method has been added to the Space-Filling Design platform.
â€¢ Space-filling designs and the ability to apply linear constraints have been added to the Mixture Design platform.
â€¢ Interval-censored test plans are available in the Accelerated Life Test Design platform.
â€¢ Tabulate's user interface for interactive tables has changed. It no longer prompts you for a column role. It assigns default roles and builds the appropriate table based on the selected
columns to make a new table or augment an existing one.
â€¢ The ability to specify transform columns has been added to all platforms.
â€¢ Assess the variable importance of a model in the Profiler platforms.
â€¢ The ability to save dynamic reports as interactive HTML has been added. Non JMP users can explore your analyses as they would in JMP.
Other important new features include the following:
â€¢ New and reorganized books and help content.
â€¢ The ability to combine windows.
â€¢ The ability to compress data tables loaded from large text files.
â€¢ Drag and drop functionality for project files.
â€¢ An Excel Import wizard.
â€¢ Support for MATLAB.
â€¢ For touchscreens, support for panning and zooming on graphs and axes in JMP.
â€¢ JSL tools:
- A JSL Profiler has been adde
d to analyze execution times.
- Several JSL files and directory commands have been added.
- Improvements to the Application Builder interface and features
