Description about the Course:
We will walk through many of the most commonly used statistical applications for Quality work and data analysis. Topics covered will include Data Distribution, Sampling and Sample Sizes, Hypothesis Testing, Control Charts, Gage R&R, Capability Studies and perhaps a little Design of Experiments. Some actual examples will be demonstrated for the use of these tools. The step-by-step approach will be shown through the use of Minitab software. Many difficult topics will seem relatively easy by the end of this session.

Three or four Take-away:
– We will know what to do with large data sets.
– How to determine if data is normally distributed.
– How to graph and interpret results from an analysis.
– Which tool to use for applying statistics to a project or process.
