Minitab Essentials ( 2 Days )

In this 2-day foundational course you will learn to minimize the time required for data analysis by using Minitab to import data, develop sound statistical approaches to exploring data, create and interpret compelling graphs, and export results. Analyze a variety of real world data sets to learn how to align your applications with the right statistical tool, and interpret statistical output to reveal problems with a process or evidence of an improvement. Learn the fundamentals of important statistical concepts, such as hypothesis testing and confidence intervals, and how to uncover and describe relationships between variables with statistical modeling tools.

This course places a strong emphasis on making sound decisions based upon the practical application of statistical techniques commonly found in manufacturing, engineering, and research and development endeavours.

Topics include:

Importing and Formatting Data
Bar Charts
Histograms
Boxplots
Pareto Charts
Scatterplots
Tables and Chi-Square Analysis
Measures of Location and Variation

t-Tests
Proportion Tests
Tests for Equal Variance
Power and Sample Size
Correlation
Simple Linear and Multiple Regression
One-Way ANOVA
Multi-Variable ANOVA

Prerequisite:

None. This course is a prerequisite for all other general Minitab Certified courses.

Statistical Quality Analysis ( 1 Day )

Develop the necessary skills to successfully evaluate and certify manufacturing and engineering measurement systems. Learn the basic fundamentals of statistical process control and how these important quality tools can provide the necessary evidence to improve and control manufacturing processes. Develop the skills to know when and where to use the various types of control charts available in Minitab for your own processes.

Learn how to utilize important capability analysis tools to evaluate your processes relative to internal and customer specifications. The course emphasis is placed on teaching quality tools as they relate to manufacturing processes.

Topics include:

Gage R&R
Destructive Testing
Gage Linearity and Bias
Attribute Agreement
Variables and Attribute Control Charts
Capability Analysis for Normal, Nonnormal, and Attribute Data

Prerequisite:

Minitab Essentials

Factorial Designs ( 1 Day )

Learn to generate a variety of full and fractional factorial designs using Minitab’s intuitive DOE interface. Real-world applications demonstrate how the concepts of randomization, replication, and blocking form the basis for sound experimentation practices. Develop the skills necessary to correctly analyze resulting data to effectively and efficiently reach experimental objectives.

Use Minitab’s customizable and powerful graphical displays to interpret and communicate experimental results to improve products and processes, find critical factors that impact important response variables, reduce process variation, and expedite research and development projects.

Topics include:

Design of Factorial Experiments
Normal Effects Plot and Pareto of Effects
Power and Sample Size
Main Effect, Interaction, and Cube Plots
Center Points
Overlaid Contour Plots
Multiple Response Optimization

Prerequisite:

Minitab Essentials

On- Site Training

Training for an organization’s employees at its site. Minimum participants required-10 Nos . Training module (Service Quality / Manufacturing), level of the training and date would be scheduled as per mutual convenience.

The benefits of on-site training are:

• Bringing our trainer on-site is the most convenient and cost-effective way to develop the skills your teams need to improve processes.
• No travel required for the participants.
