Improvements

A better interface

The Minitab environment was improved to make results creation, navigation and management easier and faster than in previous versions.

Output Pane

The Output pane contains statistical and graphical results, replacing the Session window of previous releases. Graphs that are created with a command are displayed with the results, rather than a separate window as in previous releases. Each command will have its own page, making it easier to find and interact with results. Output contains the name of the worksheet at the top (in this view, Beltwear):

Navigator

The Navigator contains all command output and is shown by default. It can be toggled on/off on the left side of the status bar (across the bottom of the application) and through the View menu.

The drop-down menu allows you to sort and group by worksheet

Split View: Comparing Results

Easily compare results by right mouse clicking on an item in the navigator and open in split view:

Worksheets/Data

In Minitab, all data resides in worksheets. Worksheets now reside in tabs along the bottom of the application. The view can be toggled on/off using the right side of the status bar or using the View menu.

Worksheet Information is located under the Data menu or if you right mouse click the worksheet tab.

Menus/Toolbars

The Editor, Tools and Window menus were removed. Functionality was rearranged to improve discoverability and usability.

File menu additions: Each of these are now located under File menu:

  • Options
  • Related Documents Manage Profiles File Security
  • Run an Exec

The View menu has been added:

Toolbars, Zoom and Customize functionality now reside in the View menu.

The Status Bar at the bottom of the application makes it easy to toggle views of the Navigator (left), Output Pane & Worksheets view, Worksheets only view or Output only view. Zoom for output is also easier.

Status bar:

Command Line/History

The Release 19 Command Line/History pane replaces the Release 18 Command Line, Command Line Editor and History window. View-Command Line/History

Statistical Features

Design of Experiments: Analyze Binary Response

Analyze binary responses is now available in the Screening, Factorial and Response Surface platforms. A major advantage is that it will allow for joint optimization of continuous and binary responses.

Quality Tools: Normal Capability Analysis

The Normal Capability Analysis commands (Normal, Between/Within, Multiple Variables (Normal) have had the following updates:

  1. Provide Upper Confidence Limits in addition to Lower Confidence Limits of
  2. Provide Confidence intervals for Expected Overall PPM < LSL, PPM > USL, PPM
  3. Provide Confidence intervals for Expected Within PPM < LSL, PPM > USL, PPM Total (For CAPA and MCAPA commands only).
  4. Provide Confidence intervals for Expected B/W PPM < LSL, PPM > USL, PPM Total (For BWCAPA and MCAPA commands only).
  5. Allowed Two-sided and One-sided options for Confidence
  6. Added a global option to display PPM or Percent, and to display confidence

 

Dialog changes

In the File-Options sub dialog, the options for Confidence intervals changed from Two-sided, Lower Bound, Upper Bound to One-sided (default) and Two-sided.

Modeling:

Provide modern criterion (AICc and BIC) to reduce models

Using p-values as stopping rules for forward selection, backward elimination, and stepwise model selection is losing favor in the statistical community. Criterion-based methods, such as minimizing AICc or BIC have become standard both in academia and in practice.

Regression: Add Pareto Chart to Fit Regression Model

A Pareto plot of effects has been added to Regression and made accessible through the Graphs sub dialog.

Basic Statistics: Correlation now includes matrix plot to visualize data
