Quality Management & Training


Minitab is a general-purpose statistical software package designed for easy interactive use, enabling a broad range of data analysis tasks to be readily accomplished.

This training supports manufacturing and non-manufacturing business activities which involve the collection, analysis and reporting of data, including the core tools, production part approval, problem-solving, six sigma and continual improvement.

Note – To obtain the maximum benefit from this training, it is recommended that delegates bring a laptop to use during the course with the latest version of Minitab software installed.  If necessary, delegates can download a free 30-day trial version from the Minitab website http://www.minitab.com/en-us/products/

Please note that we do not supply laptops or software.

This 2-day course explains how the analysis of process and product data can be readily accomplished using Minitab software. The course supports process management, problem solving and continuous improvement methodologies.

Delegates can bring a laptop computer preloaded with Minitab® software and to follow through the examples presented during the course, many of which are ‘real world’ data sets. Delegates who do not have Minitab® on their laptops, can download a free 30-day trial version from www.minitab.co.uk and use this during the course.

Please note that we do not supply the software.

Typically, the course is a 2 days course, however, a bespoke course can be provided to suit a client’s requirements.
