New Features in Minitab Model Ops 1.2

  • Time Zone and Start of Day Settings for Deployments
    • This release introduces the ability for users to change the time zone and Start-of-Day (SOD) for a deployment in the deployment settings. The SOD setting determines the binning range for the performance reports and when daily replays occur for the selected time zone.
  • Daylight Savings Time
    • Model Ops now automatically adjusts for Daylight Savings Time according to the user’s time zone.
  • Overall Drift
    • The term “Overall Drift” is now used throughout the application to clarify the difference between the drift status of individual variables and the drift status of the overall deployment. Additionally, an overall drift status indicator has been added to the deployment title bar which reports the deployment’s current drift status.
