MinitabTM Software Training

This training navigates participants through the statistical tools of Minitab’s most recent version so that they may comfortably manipulate data and solve problems. They learn how to import data from other software and database systems, and skillfully manage and graphically display it. The course covers the use and interpretation of Minitab’s graphs including histograms, box plots, bar charts, interval plots, scatter and time series plots using transactional and manufacturing examples.

This course is conducted in an interactive setting and features hands-on demonstrations throughout.

Minitab training strengthens the participant’s approach to data analysis and, subsequently, quality improvement by providing a technical knowledge base. Participants will have an understanding of:

  • Data entry and manipulation (spread sheet layout, stacking/unstacking, data types)
  • Exploratory graphical tools (scatter plots, histograms, box plots)
  • Basic statistical analysis (means & variance testing, distribution identification, fitted line plots)
  • Quality tools (Pareto Charts, Cause & Effect Diagrams, and Capability Analysis)

Students will need to bring a laptop computer loaded with MinitabTM software.
