April 25, 2012

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. – Minitab, LLC., the leading provider of software for quality improvement, is the platinum sponsor of the ASQ 2012 World Conference on Quality and Improvement, May 21-23, 2012, in Anaheim, Calif.

The conference is one of the premier events for quality professionals, and is expected to draw more than 2,500 attendees from around the world. Sponsoring the conference is a good fit for Minitab, which makes the statistical software thousands of companies use to analyze data for quality improvement. The company also offers Quality Trainer, an e-learning course that teaches statistics for quality professionals, and Quality Companion, process improvement software designed to help manage and execute quality improvement projects from start to finish.

“The ASQ World Conference provides the unique opportunity to see how practitioners are improving quality across a variety of industries,” says Michelle Paret, Minitab product marketing manager. “At Minitab, we are dedicated to helping quality improvement professionals succeed, and we’re very proud to sponsor this event.”

The theme of this year’s event, “Producing Results:  Solutions for Today’s Challenging World,” seeks to examine the different approaches and tools used to improve quality in the face of today’s challenges. More than 100 sessions will cover topics critical to a multitude of industries including manufacturing, healthcare, government, financial services and many more.

Minitab representatives will be on hand throughout the ASQ World Conference, starting with the opening reception May 20, 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the exhibit hall.  Attendees are invited to stop at the Minitab booth (#403) to learn more about the company’s products and services, which also include training, statistical mentoring and free technical support.

On Monday, May 21, a special session beginning at 10 a.m. includes two demonstrations that detail the features built into Minitab’s most recent software releases.

Mapping the Value Stream with Quality Companion will illustrate how Minitab’s powerful process improvement software can quickly create value stream maps to streamline, eliminate waste from and add value to processes. Minitab: A GPS for Statistics will highlight the Assistant feature in Minitab 16 Statistical Software, which offers interactive decision trees for choosing the right analysis and comprehensive reports that allow even novices to easily analyze data with confidence.

At 3 p.m. on Monday, May 21, Steve Bailey, master black belt at DuPont, and Lou Johnson, Minitab technical training specialist, will present a session entitled Implementing an Expanded Gage R&R Study. The session will cover how to take measurement systems analysis beyond just parts and operators.

“Simply repeating the standard study for additional factors is incomplete and often inefficient,” Johnson says. “We’ll explain how quality professionals can effectively assess the entire measurement system by performing an Expanded Gage R&R Study using Minitab Statistical Software.”
