When regulators in pharmaceutical & healthcare ask you to validate analytical techniques, measurement systems ('Data Integrity') and process performance ('SPC'), Minitab recommends these critical checks.
Analyzing two year's of fitness tracker data on her exercise workouts - durations, types and calories burnt - Eugenie Chung, our Technical Specialist, used Minitab Statistical Software to answer: does adding resistance training improve her daily calories burnt compared to focusing on pure cardio?
Parts are to be manufactured to specifications. Unstable behaviours generate quality problems experienced by customers later on. This article touches on why and how to reduce instability with a structured quality and problem-solving approach such as DMAIC applied using the modern toolkit of Minitab.
Value stream mapping is a cornerstone of the Lean process improvement methodology, and also is a recognized tool used in Six Sigma. A value stream map illustrates the flow of materials and information as a product or service moves through a process. Creating a “current state” value stream map can help you identify waste and also makes it easier to envision an improved state for process in the future.
Last week on The Minitab Blog, we used Minitab Statistical Software to review analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) and blocking variables in our ongoing design of experiment (DOE) on how to get the longest drive in your golf game. Now let’s finish it. We’re ready to review and present our results.
How do you commit to realistic forecasts and timelines when resources are limited or gathering real data is too expensive or impractical? Can simulated data be trusted for accurate predictions? That’s when Monte Carlo Simulation comes in. Check out this step-by-step guide.
