Minitab 16.2

Minitab 16.2 adds four new control charts to those already available in the software. Laney P' and U' control charts are similar to traditional P and U charts, but give you a more reliable indication of whether the process is truly in or out of control and eliminate false alarms. G and T charts help healthcare facilities and other businesses assess the time or opportunities between rare events. The Chart Diagnostic Tool will help you to make the best decission between P and P' control charts and U and U' control charts.
