Because it’s so easy to use, Minitab lets you focus on improving your business, not learning statistical software.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
Design of experiments (DOE) is a statistical tool that helps quality practitioners evaluate several process factors simultaneously, reducing the number of experimental “runs” needed. In addition to saving time and resources, a well-designed DOE will also reveal if synergies between two or more factors might lead to an even better outcome than any one by itself.
Now Minitab Inc., the leading provider of software for quality improvement, is offering webinars in March to highlight how practitioners can use the DOE capabilities in Minitab Statistical Software to help find factor settings that produce optimal process performance.
The hour-long “Introduction to DOE” webinars will be held on March 21 at 2 p.m. EDT and on March 26 at 11 a.m. EDT. Registration is free at http://www.minitab.com/training/web-events/. Space is limited.
Participants will learn how to create and analyze factorial designs and find optimal process settings using Minitab. The webinar will outline the steps and introduce how to design an experiment by taking participants through a real-world example.
With the DOE tools in Minitab 16, the latest example of Minitab Inc.’s efforts to provide the best tools for quality improvement, quality practitioners can find the settings to optimize processes using Factorial, Response Surface, Mixture and Taguchi designs. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version of Minitab 16 is available at http://www.minitab16.com.
