Minitab-18 is easy to use and can be utilized interactively to provide data manipulation and statistical analysis for data sets. Using Graphical data, you can create and edit graphs. Minitabhelps to know if entered data is correct and also helps you change the data. Based on the datawhat we have, helps us to know the root cause of problem more quickly through tools. ‘Help’menu will guide you through methods & formulas. Minitab-18 also has sample data which onecan use for learning purpose. First time users of Minitab-18 can get help of Assistant menu,which guides one to go through the analysis and even helps to interpret the results.


From preparing your data for analysis to delivering sound results, Minitab provides the tools
you need to transform your data into solutions.



Smart Data Import

Easily correct for case mismatches, properly represent missing data, remove extra spaces, and make column lengths equal when importing data from Excel and other file types.


Automatic Graph Updating

Graphs and control charts update automatically when you add or edit data so you never have to worry about keeping your graphs in sync.



Seamless Data Manipulation

Explore your data right in the worksheet. Format columns to instantly identify and subset the most frequent values, outliers, out-of-spec measurements, and more.


Effortless Presentations

Export graphs and output directly to Microsoft Word or PowerPoint to easily create presentations and share your results with colleagues.
