Made for engineers, researchers, quality professionals, Six Sigma practitioners or other experimenters, this software is engineered to help experiment design. It is powerful enough for a veteran statistician, but intuitive enough for a beginner. Its minimum-run two-level factorial design lets users screen for main effects with a low number of experimental runs. The new version's analysis tools include the Pareto chart of effects, which allows users to see vital few effects compared to the trivial many. Central composite designs based on a minimum-run core are very efficient for response surface methods, and sophisticated experiments for mixture-in-mixture designs involving separate formulations that may interact. New RSM graphics feature full-color graduated or banded contour and 3D surface plots. Actual response collections are marked on the 3D surface graphs with lollipop points, and responses can be predicted at any place on the response surface plot using the new crosshairs window. The software also has design creation tools, enhanced design augmentation ability, analysis capabilities, diagnostic capabilities, more improvement to the user interface, options for design evaluation and new import/export tools. The software comes with a printed Getting Started guide and easy-to-follow tutorials in Adobe PDF format. Stat-Ease offers free technical support and access to statistical consultants who are experts on experimental design. Design-Expert 7.0 retails for $995, and a free 45-day trial version is available.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
