Home BTech Mastering Data Analysis with JMP: A Hands-on Workshop

Welcome to our detailed coverage of the “Statistical Discovery using JMP” workshop, a pivotal event held on March 2, 2024, in Classroom GF130, Universal Ai University. This workshop, meticulously designed for first-year B.Tech. and B.Sc. students, aimed to equip participants with essential skills in data analysis using JMP software. Led by industry expert Mr. Prasad Patil and supported by a dedicated team of faculty and staff, the event promised invaluable insights into data handling, statistical analysis, and advanced visualization techniques.


Event Overview:


Organized by the Department of Universal Ai & Future Technologies School (AI&ML) in collaboration with renowned industry professionals, the workshop responded to the increasing demand for practical data analysis skills in academia and industry. Mr. Prasad Patil, with over 16 years of experience in operations and supply chain analytics, brought a wealth of practical knowledge to enrich the learning experience.


Event Agenda and Structure:


The workshop commenced with an insightful introduction to JMP software, offering participants a comprehensive overview of its features and functionalities. This foundational session prepared attendees for a series of hands-on activities and interactive sessions focusing on key aspects of data analysis.


Key Highlights:


  1. Understanding Data Types and Modeling: Participants delved into the nuances of data types—nominal, ordinal, continuous, and unstructured text. This foundational knowledge is critical for accurate data analysis and interpretation. The session emphasized the impact of different data types on modeling approaches and decision-making processes.
  2. Data Import and Export: Techniques for seamless data ingestion from various sources, including CSV files, databases, and APIs, were demonstrated. Attendees learned efficient methods to import data into JMP and export analysis results for further exploration and sharing.
  3. Data Filtering and Manipulation: The workshop underscored the importance of precise data filtering using JMP’s robust tools. Participants explored how to manipulate and subset data effectively, ensuring data integrity and relevance for specific analytical tasks.
  4. Descriptive and Inferential Statistics: Hands-on sessions focused on descriptive statistics, enabling participants to analyze data distributions, assess normality, and conduct hypothesis tests using JMP’s analytical capabilities. The workshop also covered inferential statistics techniques such as T-tests, ANOVA, and chi-square tests, empowering attendees to draw meaningful conclusions from data.
  5. Regression Analysis: From simple linear regression to advanced models like multiple linear regression (MLR) and logistic regression, participants learned to model relationships between variables and predict outcomes based on data patterns. Practical exercises reinforced their understanding of regression analysis techniques using JMP.


Learning Outcomes:


The workshop yielded significant learning outcomes for participants:

  • Proficiency in Data Analysis: Attendees demonstrated proficiency in using JMP for comprehensive data analysis, from data cleaning and manipulation to advanced statistical modeling and interpretation.
  • Enhanced Data Visualization Skills: Through practical exercises and visualization techniques, students developed the ability to create compelling visual representations of data, facilitating clearer communication of insights to stakeholders.
  • Deepened Statistical Understanding: The workshop went beyond theoretical concepts, equipping participants with practical skills to navigate and derive insights from complex datasets effectively.
