Cost: €795 (10% discount for Plastic Ireland Members) Inclusive of course manual, lunch and refreshments.

Are you struggling to find the root cause? Learn how to use Excel™ and Minitab™ to make statistics accessible and useable. Summarise data using key statistics and important graphical methods. Make better decisions about whether a variable has an effect or not by conducting significance tests such as t tests or F tests. Spot relationships between variables where they exist and discount them where they don’t by using regression analysis. Use ANOVA to identify which variables have an effect on critical to quality characteristics. Make better decisions.

Day 1 –
• Descriptive statistics
• Graphing techniques to spot differences
• Identifying relationships using regression

Day 2 –
• t tests to see differences in means
• F tests to see differences in variation
• Proportion tests to see if proportions differ
• Confidence intervals and how they impact sample size

The course will teach how statistics can be used to spot differences in data and contribute to tasks such as finding the root cause. It will be thought using either Minitab or Excel (to be agreed in advance) and the emphasis will be on what we can easily do.
