Use Minitab like a Pro – Through Statistics, DMAIC and 6 Sigma
About the Course
Use Minitab like a Pro – Through Statistics, DMAIC, and Six Sigma
We will be progressing through introduction, intermediate and advanced Minitab modules throughout the course, linked very closely to learning the essentials of Six Sigma. Even if you have never used Minitab, you will have sufficient time to get comfortable with the software before diving deeper into the content.
Minitab is the cornerstone software associated with the practical understanding and application of Six Sigma.
What is DMAIC?
DMAIC, or “Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control” was made popular by the Six Sigma community, but stands on its own as a versatile and complete problem-solving roadmap. The course will follow the DMAIC approach to learning Six Sigma via Minitab.
How will we be learning Minitab?
Participants will be encouraged to either already own Minitab or download a 30-day free trial prior to the course. Alternatively, they can simply follow along if they do not own the software on their own computers. There is no prerequisite for having any working knowledge of Minitab prior to the course. An experienced "Analyze and Improve" trainer consultant will deliver the hands-on practical training.
