Data Analysis with MINITAB Statistical Software

Course Overview

One of Lean Six Sigma's biggest advantages is to make better decisions based upon data and Minitab is one of the best tools that could be used to accomplish that. Hence, the participants will learn how to increase their speed in repetitive tasks, how to create their own custom presentation graphics pages, how to handle large data sets without getting lost, how to import from Excel and much more. The course provides familiarity with Minitab and will increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the participant’s data analysis and improve their knowledge of statistics. The training programme will include a general Introduction / overview of the Lean Six Sigma Business Improvement Methodology.

Training Description

This course is designed in Ten (10) Practicum and introduces the participants to the most commonly used features in Minitab. Throughout the course, the participants will use functions, create graphs, and generate statistics. The contents of the course relate to the actions the participant need to perform in their own Minitab sessions. They will use a sampling of Minitab’s features to see the range of features and statistics that Minitab provides. Most statistical analyses require a series of steps, often directed by background Knowledge or by the subject area you are investigating. Practicums 2 through 5 illustrate the analysis steps in a typical Minitab session:

• Exploring data with graphs

• Conducting statistical analyses and procedures

• Assessing quality

• Designing an experiment

Practicums 6 through 9 provide information on:

• Using shortcuts to automate future analyses

• Generating a report

• Preparing worksheets

• Customizing Minitab to fit your needs Practicum 1 provides an overview and Practicum 10 – Getting Help, includes information on getting answers and using Minitab Help features. It provides an overview of the Minitab environment, a discussion about the types and forms of data that Minitab uses, and quick-reference tables of actions
