Concept, Design, Optimize and Verify

With any new project, planning, analysis and implementation is key. For R&D, Minitab Workspace has an exclusive Concept, Design, Optimize and Verify (CDOV) project template designed uniquely for individuals who work in the field. With sixteen relevant tools, you can be confident that you have the power to launch, manage and successfully execute your next big project.

Design of Experiments

Design of Experiments (DOE), conveniently located within Minitab Statistical Software, can help you identify optimal factor settings and improve the overall reliability and performance of your product. Discover the most influential factors and interactions to save valuable time and resources.

Reliability and Survival Analysis

Efficiently analyze failure data to assess product reliability, conduct failure mode analyses and create and analyze accelerated life tests. If you are working with people, not products, use Minitab's survival analysis to compare survivability across patient cohorts.

Predictive Analytics

When you are developing a product or are preparing to manufacture a product, it is important to know the possible defects that could hold up or complicate the manufacturing process. Regression may be your favorite tool but may not always be the best bet. The brief demo below shows how Predictive Analytics was able to solve a problem for a major pharmaceutical company that regression alone could not.
