Written for students in undergraduate and graduate statistics courses, as well as for the practitioner who wants to make better decisions from data and models, this updated and expanded second edition of Fundamentals of Predictive Analytics with JMP(R) bridges the gap between courses on basic statistics, which focus on univariate and bivariate analysis, and courses on data mining and predictive analytics. Going beyond the theoretical foundation, this book gives you the technical knowledge and problem-solving skills that you need to perform real-world multivariate data analysis. First, this book teaches you to recognize when it is appropriate to use a tool, what variables and data are required, and what the results might be. Second, it teaches you how to interpret the results and then, step-by-step, how and where to perform and evaluate the analysis in JMP . Using JMP 13 and JMP 13 Pro, this book offers the following new and enhanced features in an example-driven format: an add-in for Microsoft Excel Graph Builder dirty data visualization regression ANOVA logistic regression principal component analysis LASSO elastic net cluster analysis decision trees k-nearest neighbors neural networks bootstrap forests boosted trees text mining association rules model comparison With today’s emphasis on business intelligence, business analytics, and predictive analytics, this second edition is invaluable to anyone who needs to expand his or her knowledge of statistics and to apply real-world, problem-solving analysis.

Understand the concepts and techniques of analysis while learning to reason statistically. Being an effective analyst requires that you know how to properly define a problem and apply suitable statistical techniques, as well as clearly and honestly communicate the results with information-rich visualizations and precise language. Being a well-informed consumer of analyses requires the same set of skills so that you can recognize credible, actionable research when you see it. Robert Carver's Practical Data Analysis with JMP, Second Edition uses the powerful interactive and visual approach of JMP to introduce readers to the logic and methods of statistical thinking and data analysis. It enables you to discriminate among and to use fundamental techniques of analysis, enabling you to engage in statistical thinking by analyzing real-world problems. “Application Scenarios” at the end of each chapter challenge you to put your knowledge and skills to use with data sets that go beyond mere repetition of chapter examples, and three new review chapters help readers integrate ideas and techniques. In addition, the scope and sequence of the chapters have been updated with more coverage of data management and analysis of data. The book can stand on its own as a learning resource for professionals or be used to supplement a standard college-level introduction-to-statistics textbook. It includes varied examples and problems that rely on real sets of data, typically starting with an important or interesting research question that an investigator has pursued. Reflective of the broad applicability of statistical reasoning, the problems come from a wide variety of disciplines, including engineering, life sciences, business, economics, among Practical Data Analysis with JMP, Second Edition introduces you to the major platforms and essential features of JMP and will leave you with a sufficient background and the confidence to continue your exploration independently.

Drawing on the authors’ two decades of experience in applied modeling and data mining, Foundations of Predictive Analytics presents the fundamental background required for analyzing data and building models for many practical applications, such as consumer behavior modeling, risk and marketing analytics, and other areas. It also discusses a variety of practical topics that are frequently missing from similar texts. The book begins with the statistical and linear algebra/matrix foundation of modeling methods, from distributions to cumulant and copula functions to Cornish–Fisher expansion and other useful but hard-to-find statistical techniques. It then describes common and unusual linear methods as well as popular nonlinear modeling approaches, including additive models, trees, support vector machine, fuzzy systems, clustering, naïve Bayes, and neural nets. The authors go on to cover methodologies used in time series and forecasting, such as ARIMA, GARCH, and survival analysis. They also present a range of optimization techniques and explore several special topics, such as Dempster–Shafer theory. An in-depth collection of the most important fundamental material on predictive analytics, this self-contained book provides the necessary information for understanding various techniques for exploratory data analysis and modeling. It explains the algorithmic details behind each technique (including underlying assumptions and mathematical formulations) and shows how to prepare and encode data, select variables, use model goodness measures, normalize odds, and perform reject inference. Web Resource The book’s website at www.DataMinerXL.com offers the DataMinerXL software for building predictive models. The site also includes more examples and information on modeling.

Most textbooks on business process management focus on either the nuts and bolts of computer simulation or the managerial aspects of business processes. Covering both technical and managerial aspects of business process management, Business Process Modeling, Simulation and Design, Second Edition presents the tools to design effective business processes and the management techniques to operate them efficiently. New to the Second Edition Three completely revised chapters that incorporate ExtendSim 8 An introduction to simulation A chapter on business process analytics Developed from the authors’ many years of teaching process design and simulation courses, the text provides students with a thorough understanding of numerous analytical tools that can be used to model, analyze, design, manage, and improve business processes. It covers a wide range of approaches, including discrete event simulation, graphical flowcharting tools, deterministic models for cycle time analysis and capacity decisions, analytical queuing methods, and data mining. Unlike other operations management books, this one emphasizes user-friendly simulation software as well as business processes, rather than only manufacturing processes or general operations management problems. Taking an analytical modeling approach to process design, this book illustrates the power of simulation modeling as a vehicle for analyzing and designing business processes. It teaches how to apply process simulation and discusses the managerial implications of redesigning processes. The ExtendSim software is available online and ancillaries are available for instructors.

Partial Least Squares (PLS) is a flexible statistical modeling technique that applies to data of any shape. It models relationships between inputs and outputs even when there are more predictors than observations. Using JMP statistical discovery software from SAS, Discovering Partial Least Squares with JMP explores PLS and positions it within the more general context of multivariate analysis. Ian Cox and Marie Gaudard use a “learning through doing” style. This approach, coupled with the interactivity that JMP itself provides, allows you to actively engage with the content. Four complete case studies are presented, accompanied by data tables that are available for download. The detailed “how to” steps, together with the interpretation of the results, help to make this book unique. Discovering Partial Least Squares with JMP is of interest to professionals engaged in continuing development, as well as to students and instructors in a formal academic setting. The content aligns well with topics covered in introductory courses on: psychometrics, customer relationship management, market research, consumer research, environmental studies, and chemometrics. The book can also function as a supplement to courses in multivariate statistics and to courses on statistical methods in biology, ecology, chemistry, and genomics. While the book is helpful and instructive to those who are using JMP, a knowledge of JMP is not required, and little or no prior statistical knowledge is necessary. By working through the introductory chapters and the case studies, you gain a deeper understanding of PLS and learn how to use JMP to perform PLS analyses in real-world situations. This book motivates current and potential users of JMP to extend their analytical repertoire by embracing PLS. Dynamically interacting with JMP, you will develop confidence as you explore underlying concepts and work through the examples. The authors provide background and guidance to support and empower you on this journey. This book is part of the SAS Press program.
