Very easy statsitics softwares

Very good software and very worth of money. Highly reccomend it.

Pros

Most of the statistics software is burdened with instructions and how to use each tool. But Minitab 19 will get rid of that issue. You just need the software and the name of each tool. Virtually you will be able to do all analyses. No expertise is necessary to use the software. Just a basic knowledge of statistics is sufficient.

Cons

I do not see any drawback. Is supperior one compared to the similar software. It would be convnient if can be used online.

BI/Analysts Go-to tool

Solved the problems with small data sets for Six Sigma thing. Benefits I realized is that it saves a lot of time for data processing and creating visualizations as few clicks makes it quick.

Pros

Incredibly valuable general libraries for linear models like statsmodels with functionality of using JSON equations helps create classic graphs and analysis for the Six Sigma projects. It automated the calculations and provided quick results. A lot of data processing work can be performed with just few clicks.

Cons

The UI is classic and can be more attractive. Can add advance analytics options in the UI and can expand the integration options.

Good tools for researchers, analyst

We have been using this software for more than 10 years in the company. It very helpful for our improvement projects. 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

- Very common tool and that can be used for root cause analysis, problem solver and especially in the project needs to work with data (6 Sigma projects) - The guideline and assistance function in the tool is quite helpful for the beginner - Customer support is great as you can call, email and they can work out with you for the solution quickly. - The output/report makes sense with all logic and statistics result

Cons

- The learning curve is quite long, needs to invest both time/money to know how to use the tool efficiently - The graph/report output is not perfect and sometimes it requires time to make it up - Big gap to integrate with other systems, meaning you only use this offline, no options to interface with other databases. That also shows the limitation when import/export file.

Suitable software for engineers

I have enjoy using this software for planing several optimal design and also regression modeling. I appreciate providing the predicted R-Square as an useful option in the output of regression analysis.

Pros

There are many statistical software in the market but Minitab is specially designed for engineers. It has a very advanced capability in design and analysis of experiment.

Cons

The design of this software user interface is so classic. So, maybe using another framework for making the user interface more attractive is needed.

Reasons for Switching to Minitab

SPSS is suitable for social science, so for engineering projects I prefer to use Minitab.
