(Food & Beverages company, 10001+ employees)

Very good for descriptive and inferential analysis

2018-09-19

I use minitab 18 very often to analyze process variations of food production plant, also it is used to report the improvements on any process based on any change.

Pros

The interpretation of results that minitab provides on integral analysis like Capability analysis or hypothesis testing is very useful for sharing with management.

Cons

*Also querying data from an external data source could be easier, at this moment requires a well defined DSN file and adjusting filters on data to retrieve could be also easier.

Siew Kheong W.

One of the statistical analysis software that I used every week

2021-07-25

It helps me to perform my job more efficiently as data driven conclusion or reports are very well accepted by many people especially management.

Pros

I like Minitab for its easy navigation and the layout or its dashboard information.

Cons

Online licensing is the least that I like about this software. Currently I am using online license which means I have to be online to use Minitab which is very inconvenient for me.

Fantastic Software for Data Processing

2021-04-15

I can define as fantastic due the flexibility and how easy is to handle, additional the graphical part is helpful to prepare report and make better business decisions.

Pros

The simplicity, interaction that help a new user to perform the data analysis and processing all the tasks related with Statistics, now they included the another tab option where you can handle several data sets in one project.

Cons

I understand that they can include dedicated graphic panel for every tab, because currently you have all on them together and increase the chance for mistakes, and see if someone have the opportunity to shift the dataanalysis where you want in the field of the left.

It's hard to import external data sometimes.

Good tools for researchers, analyst

2018-11-29

However, that was not easy when we think to use the output from Minitab to apply in our manufacturing information system or think how to apply the advantage of Minitab to our big-data.

Pros

- The output/report makes sense with all logic and statistics result

Cons

That also shows the limitation when import/export file.

One of the best tools to generate statistical charts and process statistical data.

2018-09-18

For the design of experiments this tool was used to process the data of the drying process of epoxy adhesives. the entire report of the experiment was generated with this software.

Pros

The capacity and the algorithms to process the statistical data is excellent, this tool is perhaps the most complete to manage statistics.

Cons

Being such a complete tool, the learning curve is quite delayed, handling the tool is not so usable.

Minitab, the best tool for quality management

2019-05-29

I used minitab to run time series plots, charts and control charts, as well as Pareto charts, fish bone charts.

Cons

Nothing! I would recommend it without hesitation!

Perfect application for beginners

2018-05-23

Pros

Great tool for Analysis

Minitab helped me at university and work for showing my visual analysis of the data in a clean manner.

Pros

It is a great software to have which allows you t visually represent and analyze your data without having to actually figure out how to use the software in detail.

Cons

Minitab is lacking the intuitive user-friendly face which will make it less intimidating for a beginner to start.

The process to analyze data in the software is simple, and ready for presentation.

Pros

It also has simple means of exporting the charts to whatever presentation or report vehicle utilized for a project.

Cons

If you have not had ample statistical analysis experience, or statistical basics, this program could definitely seem overwhelming for all it has to offer and what you can customize on an analysis.
