Our training sessions are divided into two series – Manufacturing Quality and Service Quality. Both series cover similar statistical methods but their course materials use very different examples. Choosing courses in the series that best reflect the work you do will help you get the most from our training.
Our Manufacturing Quality series is for professionals working in the automotive industry, chemical production plants, and other companies involved in manufacturing. The course materials include examples with metrics such as diameters, pressure, and hardness.
Our Service Quality series is for professionals working in financial services, healthcare and other areas that use metrics such as time, defect rates, and revenue data. The course materials include more examples of analyzing categorical (count) data.
Two of our courses, Quality Companion Essentials and Macros (for Minitab Statistical Software), have appropriate content for either series.
Many courses in both series have prerequisite classes. Please contact us so we can help you determine if the course you want to take is right for you.
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 covered in the training material 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
