The "Minitab" course helps to safely handle the surface of the Minitab software and teaches you the basic tool controls.

course objects

Learning and application of:

  • various methods to read in and organize the data and to graphically prepare it
  • basic statistical evaluation methods, such as hypothesis tests and confidence intervals, ANOVA, correlation and regression
  • Review the requirements of statistical tests and sample size estimates and selectivity with Minitab
  • practice-oriented examples in order to apply and interpret appropriate graphical and statistical evaluation methods
  • the presentation of results in a report, as well as evaluate repetitive analyses automatically via a simple macro.
