Minitab, LLC. Introduces Quality Statistics E-Learning Service

January 10, 2007 

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Minitab, LLC today announced the launch of Quality Trainer by Minitab™, a comprehensive, Web-based learning service that teaches statistics and serves as an ongoing resource for quality professionals.

The service is available via subscription at

Using narration, animation, and other multimedia, Quality Trainer teaches subscribers how to apply statistics and use Minitab Statistical Software to maximize the benefits of data-driven quality initiatives, such as Six Sigma.

“Quality Trainer is a great complement to Minitab’s in-person training,” says Cate Twohill, product manager at Minitab. “For people who’ve attended Minitab training, it’s a way to keep that knowledge fresh. And if you can’t attend our live training sessions, Quality Trainer is a convenient alternative for learning quality statistics.”

The service delivers nine chapters of material covering basic graphical analysis and statistical inference, as well as more advanced techniques like process capability, analysis of variance and design of experiments.

“Professionals learn how to use these methods to solve real-world quality improvement challenges, and they get to practice their new skills immediately through hands-on exercises and interactive quizzes,” says Twohill.

“Quality Trainer’s engaging, Web-based design makes difficult concepts easy to grasp and gives professionals convenient access to an ongoing resource for their projects.”

Minitab’s statistics experts developed Quality Trainer in collaboration with instructional design and multimedia teams at Enspire Learning, an e-learning development company based in Austin, Texas. The end result is an interactive learning experience filled with engaging storylines that bring Minitab’s highly regarded training services to a wider audience via the Internet.

“Enspire has been honored to play a part in this exciting new approach to teaching the fundamentals of business statistics,” says Kara Beaver, Enspire’s producer for the project. “We believe this course breaks new ground in how people will learn statistics, because of the unique way it integrates powerful online content, animations, interactivity and real-life scenarios.”

Quality Trainer furthers Minitab’s efforts to provide the best tools for quality improvement professionals. This month the company also launches Minitab 15 Statistical Software, the latest version of the leading package used in quality improvement initiatives worldwide.

In August 2006, the company released Quality Companion 2 by Minitab™, process improvement software designed specifically to help Six Sigma professionals manage and execute projects.
