Visual Six Sigma: Making Data Analysis Lean with JMP 9.0
Philip Ramsey, PhD, Consultant and Educator – North Haven Group and University of New Hampshire
Visual Six Sigma (VSS) emphasizes the use of dynamic data visualization to accelerate the process of transforming data into sound business decisions. The analytic and graphical tools generally used in Six Sigma today have changed little since the introduction of Six Sigma in the late 1980s. In contrast, VSS seeks to leverage the powerful dynamic visualization and enhanced modeling capabilities in JMP in support of sound and timely improvements to business processes. In this talk, three case studies – drawn from health care, aerospace and manufacturing – will be used to demonstrate how VSS, paired with JMP 9.0, can make the process of identifying root causes and formulating effective solutions lean. In addition to illustrating the powerful interactive visualization capabilities in JMP 9.0, new features in the Partition and Neural Net platforms will be demonstrated.
