Mr. Douglas Shuit has been involved in the power industry for more than 40 years. He has used StatSoft’s consulting services as well as STATISTICA for his problem solving. He sat down with us to discuss his use of our services:
Selecting variables is typically one of the first steps within an analysis dialog in STATISTICA. When the data set contains a large number of variables, certain tools in STATISTICA, including Variable bundles and Show appropriate variables only, make this selection process easier.
A variable bundle is a selection of a set of variables within a spreadsheet used to facilitate repeated selections of that same set of variables in analyses. After a variable bundle is created, the bundle can be selected for analysis instead of individually selecting each required variable. This tool helps both to speed up the variable selection process and to ensure the proper selections are made each time the bundle is used.
