Master modern analytical methods! It is not necessary to know complex mathematical formulas, but to know how to prepare, collect and interpret data correctly. Statistical analysis will no longer be a problem for you after taking this course.

In our working lives, we are often surrounded by data. We collect large amounts of data on all the parameters of a process or product, but it is very difficult to evaluate this data effectively. We use very limited analytical tools and charts that do not indicate the real root cause of a problem, dependency, or trend. During this course, we will teach you how to use complex data analysis techniques using Minitab statistical software. The training is based on real cases, which are analyzed graphically and then statistically. Each analysis is explained methodically and then immediately practiced in Minitab.

This course is very useful for those who want to apply Six Sigma tools. Minitab has consistently proven useful for data analysis in the context of this methodology.

Typical situations where to use analytical methods

  • We make decisions on intuitive basis and estimates rather than based on data.
  • We want to promote change, but we have no data arguments.
  • We collect all the data, but we do not know how to use it.
  • We do not know how much data we need for the proposed analysis.
  • We need to set up KPI measurement.
  • We have bought expensive statistical software, but are not using its capabilities.

You will learn to

  • Set-up measurement and data collection needed for analysis.
  • Detect potential problems from the data trends.
  • Evaluate data parameters.
  • Find a solution based on the data.
  • Execute graphical and statistical analysis using Minitab software.
  • Use statistical tools: hypothesis testing, regression analysis, correlation, Box plot diagram, Pareto, Scatter diagram and SPC charts.
