Minitab 15 Statistical Software COURSE DESCRIP TIONS

Minitab 15 courses are designed for professionals who are familiar with basic statistical concepts, and are divided into two series – Manufacturing Quality and Service Quality.
Many of the same statistical techniques are covered in both series, but each series has its own course materials filled with examples drawn from the industries they serve.
