## Variable Gage R&R with JMP

What is Variable Gage R&R? Variable Gage Repeatability & Reproducibility (Gage R&R) is a method used to analyze the variability of a measurement system by partitioning the variation of the measurements using ANOVA (Analysis of Variance). Whenever something is measured repeatedly or by different people or processes, the results of the measurements will vary. Variation…

What is a Histogram? A histogram is a graphical tool to present the distribution of the data. The X axis of a histogram represents the possible values of the variable and the Y axis represents the frequency of the value occurring. A histogram consists of adjacent rectangles erected over intervals with heights equal to the…

What is a P Chart? The P chart plots the percentage of defectives in one subgroup as a data point. It considers the situation when the subgroup size of inspected units is not constant. The underlying distribution of the P-chart is binomial distribution. P Chart Equations Data Point: Center Line: …

Read More## Pareto Analysis with JMP

What is the Pareto Principle? The Pareto principle is an observation not a law. Named after Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, this principle states that for a variety of situations, 80% of consequences come from 20% of the causes, thus the Pareto principle is also known as the 80/20 rule. The 80/20 rule basically reminds us that…

Read More## Box Cox Transformation with SigmaXL

Box Cox Transformation Data transforms are usually applied so that the data appear to more closely meet assumptions of a statistical inference model to be applied or to improve the interpret-ability or appearance of graphs. Power transformation is a class of transformation functions that raise the response to some power. For example, a square root…

What is a Box Plot? A box plot is a graphical method to summarize a data set by visualizing the minimum value, 25th percentile, median, 75th percentile, the maximum value, and potential outliers. A percentile is the value below which a certain percentage of data fall. For example, if 75% of the observations have values…

Read More## Chi Square Test with SigmaXL

Chi Square (Contingency Tables) We have looked at hypothesis tests to analyze the proportion of one population vs. a specified value, and the proportions of two populations, but what do we do if we want to analyze more than two populations? A chi-square test is a hypothesis test in which the sampling distribution of the…

What is a U Chart? The U chart is a type of control chart used to monitor discrete (count) data where the sample size is greater than one, typically the average number of defects per unit. Defect vs. Defective Remember the difference between defect and defective? A defect of a unit is the unit’s characteristic…

Read More## IR Chart with SigmaXL

What is an IR Chart? The IR chart (also called individual-moving range chart or I-MR chart) is a popular control chart for continuous data with subgroup size equal to one. The I chart plots an individual observation as a data point. The MR chart plots the absolute value of the difference between two consecutive observations…

What is Kruskal–Wallis One-Way Analysis of Variance? The Kruskal Wallis one-way analysis of variance is a statistical hypothesis test to compare the medians among more than two groups. Null Hypothesis (H0): η1 = η2 = … = ηk Alternative Hypothesis (Ha): at least one of the medians is different from others. Where: ni is the…
