Says latest statistical software release provides "powerful data analysis."

August 11, 2010 

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. ― SixSigmaIQ, a leading Web site for quality improvement professionals, gives Minitab 16 Statistical Software great marks in its detailed review.

"I am a Six Sigma practitioner, not a statistician," reports reviewer Michael Mercer, an ASQ Certified Quality Engineer with 30 years of experience as a quality professional. "Minitab acknowledges that there are many people like me, and its new version helps Six Sigma practitioners better understand which analysis to run, and how to better understand the results."

In particular, the review highlights the Assistant feature, new in Minitab 16.  "The Assistant Menu provides the infrequent user a whole new way to approach and use Minitab...you follow an interactive decision tree to determine the right approach and (it) allows you to present your findings using detailed, comprehensive reports.

"It’s the most compelling reason to upgrade," Mercer notes. 

"The dialog boxes for each procedure are straightforward and uncluttered," he continues. "Some statistical software packages are overpowering with far too many arcane options for the occasional user...powerful data analysis with a minimum of clutter is Minitab’s strength."

The SixSigmaIQ review also extols the software's speed, its DMAIC toolbar, its ability to send output directly into Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, enhanced design of experiments (DOE) features, and its ability to quickly import large data files. "You’ll now have a quicker time importing your large Excel files—and all kinds of files for that matter," Mercer notes.

Six Sigma IQ, a division of IQPC, is a Web site committed to providing quality professionals with industry information, learning opportunities and supplemental resources in the form of articles penned by practicing experts, podcast and written interviews with industry practitioners and a myriad of videos and presentations.
