Regression and DOE Features of Minitab
Presented by Justin Callahan (Minitab)

Learn what is new in Minitab version 17 through fun tailgate examples. Can you grill the perfect steak? Which team’s fans have the most heart? Will the kicker make the field goal in the last seconds of the game? We will explore the answers to these questions using the new statistical modelling tools in Minitab 17. Regression and DOE have been improved and Bubble Plot has been added to make data analysis easier.
