JMP links statistics and graphics. The Design of Experiments (DOE) facility allows users to customize experiments, testing various factors and responses, to gain the greatest insight from the least resources. Exploratory modeling options make it easier to discover the underlying patterns in data even when there is no model identified, when there are multiple variables with non-linear relationships, or when there are underlying factors not measured in the data. The software integrates visualization into the modeling tools to make it easy for users to understand the relationships found in their data. Cause-and-effect diagrams help users understand key factors that impact processes, so that DOE can be used to optimize the process surrounding those key factors.
