BO 201 – Hypothesis Test, ANOVA and Regression Analysis – 2 days

Introduction :
This course is designed for those existing users who would like to fully utilize the available features and tools of JMP. This course covers analysis of data with a single or multiple continuous response variable using analysis of variance and regression methods. Important statistical concepts such as confidence intervals, power and sample size, p-value, lack of fit, correlation, etc. are also introduced.

Learn how to:
compare two means using a t-test
generate and interpret an analysis of variance to compare more than two means
analyze relationships between continuous variables using simple and multiple linear regression models
perform an analysis of covariance to incorporate continuous predictors
Evaluate assumptions in statistical hypothesis testing.

Training Approach
This practical course combines classroom teaching, practical exercises, and group discussion with actual factory based projects to provide a complete action learning experience. The course has been designed to enable all participants leave the training room with a set of new knowledge, tools, skills and direct experience of how to use JMP software for statistical quality analysis in a real company setting.

Prerequisite: Statistical Data Analysis Through JMP software
Training facilities: Computer installed with JMP software and LCD projector
