Variation Reduction Using JMP Software

Would you like to reduce the variation in your manufacturing process? What are your biggest sources of variation? Where would your efforts be most effective if you were to reduce some of the variation? Every processing operation should dedicate resources to identifying and reducing sources of variation.

Reducing variation is its own reward because subsequent areas of improvements will be much easier to determine. We find that most engineers and analysts who work in manufacturing spend considerable time in responding to problems and incidents. We recommend that every manufacturer assign a dedicated group that is tasked with reducing variation, which will uncover practical insights and lead to fewer incidents.

1 day


Data Analysis and Statistics Using JMP Software for Engineers and Scientists course, or equivalent experience in statistics and JMP. Some basic knowledge of Design of Experiments would be helpful, but is not strictly necessary.

Expected Results

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • calculate variance components
  • understand and communicate variance components
  • use variance components to aid in reducing variation in process and product
  • use variance components to choose the minimum necessary sampling plan for control charts
