Visitors to Minitab.com can also see a thank-you video from Minitab employees and partners, a personal message from Minitab’s President and CEO, Barbara Ryan, and an interactive timeline of product events and milestones.

Minitab Statistical Software was first developed in 1972 by Ryan and two other Penn State statistics instructors who wanted to incorporate computers into the teaching of college statistics courses. At the time, students were using desk calculators to perform tedious statistical calculations.

“Using Minitab to perform the calculations freed students to concentrate on learning what really mattered—the statistical concepts,” says Ryan. “From the start, our goal has been to make data analysis easier.”

In the early 1980s, the use of Minitab expanded to academic institutions in other countries and to business and industry. As students used Minitab in the classroom, the software migrated with them into their careers. When organizations began adopting statistical quality improvement methods in the late 1980s, Minitab’s ease-of-use made the software the top choice of consultants and companies implementing Six Sigma.

Minitab has evolved over the years, responding to customer and market demand by adding numerous new features and quality tools while continuing to develop a product that’s easy to use.

Minitab is celebrating the anniversary and thanking customers online and at tradeshows and conferences through the end of the year. Customers can keep up-to-date with 40th anniversary events by visiting Minitab.com, and by following Minitab on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.
