Implementation of Six Sigma with Regression Methods
Many people working on Six Sigma projects do not realize the additional benefits of utilizing better regression models. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) models used in designed experiments are special cases of regression models. They can also be extended to model covariates, such as time, ambient temperature or other uncontrolled factors which are trying to "sneak" into your experiment. Regression models are the most versatile tools for data analysis.
In this hands-on, two-day seminar, you will first learn how to use regression techniques in a wide variety of contexts, from designed experiments to observational studies, especially those performed in Six Sigma projects. You will also learn about dangers of regression analysis and how to avoid them. You will then practice those skills in problem-solving sessions and learn how to apply them using MINITAB® computer software. In addition, you will learn about statistical resources available on the Internet. No prior knowledge of regression methods, or MINITAB® is required. This course provides 1.4 CEUs.
How you will benefit:
$695. This price includes a copy of The Manual for Statistical Resources on the Internet, written by the instructor. Continental breakfast and lunch is included each day of the seminar.
