This section is intended to get you off to a quick start with PSS. More detailed information about using the application is found in How to Use: PSS Application and in the example sections.

To start the application on a PC using the Windows operating system, select StartProgramsSASSAS Power and Sample Size 3.1 (or the latest release).

When you first use the application for a release, you are asked some configuration questions. For more information see the section Configuration.

As an inital step, you also must define a SAS connection. If you have Foundation SAS software installed on the PC that you are using for PSS, this step can be done for you automatically. To define a connection or to determine whether one has already been defined, see the section SAS Connections.
