    Minitab 16.2.4.4 is the latest free update to Minitab 16 Statistical Software for single-user licenses. The 16.2.4.4 update addresses critical compatibility issues between Microsoft Windows 8.1 and earlier single –user versions of Minitab 16. To avoid these issues, those using the Minitab 16 single-user version should update to 16.2.4.4 before updating to Microsoft Windows 8.1.

    New Features

     

    G and T Charts

    These control charts allow users to easily monitor rare events, such as infections in a hospital or accidents in a production facility. They are more effective than traditional control charts because they require less data and offer greater statistical sensitivity.

    Laney P' and U' Charts

    These control charts offer a more reliable indication of whether or not a process is in control when too much or too little variation in your data may be preventing an accurate assessment. This update also includes diagnostics to help you determine when to use P' and U' charts instead of P and U charts.
