SAS/LAB software provides guided data analysis for meeting the day-to-day analytical and data presentation needs of engineers and scientists. SAS/LAB software is a component of SAS System software data analysis capabilities.
A fully integrated component of the SAS System, the software includes specific capabilities for engineers and scientists. Commonly required capabilities for analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, and regression analysis are closely linked with graphical tools that produce scatter plots, histograms, box-and-whisker plots, and contour plots. An on-line journal facility allows you to store text and graphical output, software-generated analysis interpretation, and personal comments.
Engineers can use SAS/LAB software for observational studies, for determining variation in manufactured products or processes, and for analyzing data from simple experiments -- all through a suggestion-driven interface. Everything from data transformation to analysis of variance and regression can be accomplished with minimal statistical expertise -- and all from within an environment designed for users to solve commonly encountered problems quickly and easily.
With SAS/LAB software, research scientists may conduct routine, day-to-day analyses with minimal statistical training. Research and development staff are provided with on-line guidance for basic univariate and bivariate statistics, analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, and regression analysis, as well as graphical tools for producing scatter plots, histograms, and box-and-whisker plots. SAS/LAB software presents the most appropriate choices at each step of the analysis, provides a journal facility for saving results, and offers extensive context-sensitive help.
Statistical Consulting Staff
Computing professionals who support a large number of researchers -- many of whom only need to perform routine analyses (such as analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, and regression analysis) - find SAS/LAB software to be a key consulting partner. Not only does the software make end users more productive, it frees up the statistical consulting staff for more sophisticated statistical analysis.
The SAS System
Now installed in sites on six continents, the SAS System provides modular applications that are fully integrated, allowing organizations to tailor the software to their specific information needs.
The SAS System brings together an organization's two most strategic assets -- its people and the information with which they work. The SAS System is designed to:
The functionality of the SAS System is built around the four primary data-driven tasks common to virtually any application; data access, data management, data analysis, and data presentation. And surrounding this functionality is a rich and productive applications development environment for automating any or all of these tasks to meet specific applications requirements.
We'll show you how SAS/LAB software can become an integral part of your computing strategy, and how you can use the SAS System to meet the data processing needs of your organization today, and in the future.
