Book Description
Based on realworld applications, Analyzing and Interpreting Continuous Data Using JMP: A StepbyStep Guide, by Jose Ramirez, Ph.D., and Brenda S. Ramirez, M.S., combines statistical instructions with a powerful and popular software platform to solve common problems in engineering and science. In the many case studies provided, the authors clearly set up the problem, explain how the data were collected, show the analysis using JMP, interpret the output in a userfriendly way, and then draw conclusions and make recommendations. This stepbystep format enables users new to statistics or JMP to learn as they go, but the book will also be helpful to those with some familiarity with statistics and JMP. The book includes a foreword written by Professor Douglas C. Montgomery.
