Pros: I liked the package because it was a professional use package (not just deigned for classroom use) and it was still easy enough for my students to use. There is a small learning curve to overcome, but my students adapt to the package very quickly. The iterations I have used started with version 12 and I am now using version 17. They product has become more streamlined over the years and more user friendly as well. The support I have received from Minitab has been excellent and utilizing the license server for my lab allows me to deploy the package to more computers. That is a real plus when one machine goes down and I need to use all my licenses.

Cons: Some of the graphical outputs are still not as good as MS Excel, but they have been improving over the years. I wish it could do a back-to-back stem plot, but that's a minor inconvenience.

Overall: The program allows my students to work with very large data sets and allows me to assess their analyses very easily.

Pros: Minitab offers a very good end user experience for descriptive and inferential analysis. Also minitab product help tutorials are very good and well explained that cover most of the possible doubts.

The interpretation of results that minitab provides on integral analysis like Capability analysis or hypothesis testing is very useful for sharing with management.

Cons: *Developing scripts on minitab is not as intuitive as it should be so doing repetitive task can be a headache.

*Also querying data from an external data source could be easier, at this moment requires a well defined DSN file and adjusting filters on data to retrieve could be also easier.

*There are not enough modeling methods on minitab

Overall: I use minitab 18 very often to analyze process variations of food production plant, also it is used to report the improvements on any process based on any change.

This is an excellent product for statistical-based analysis.

Pros: What I like most about this product is all of the functionalities available for performing statistical analysis on both real-world data and theoretical studies. The built-in functions and graphs are absolutely excellent and save a lot of time by automatically doing computations on data sets that would otherwise require additional software for computation. It is very easy to input the data and then have so many different options for essentially "auto-analyzing" the data through the large variety of statistic tools made available with this program. I am yet to hear of another program geared to this level with statistical analysis tools.

Cons: What I like least about this software is the way that some of the graphs are generated. Sometimes graphs with many data points may come out very messy and crowded and I feel that steps could be taken to improve the aesthetics of such graphs as essentially the point of graphs is to allow the reader to have a good visual with the behavior of the data or whatever it might be which is being presented on the graph. As such, I feel that better aesthetics are critical for communicating this information.

Pros: Minitab facilitates processing, very quickly for data analysis and the clarity of the graphics are better than those of SPSS.

Its statistical tools are precise and easy to use, allowing us to access a better knowledge of the information contained in the data, with an important saving of time in the collection, analysis and interpretation cycle.

You can work something basic starting with the descriptive statistics to statistical methods for predictions such as regression models, ANOVA, Time Series and experiment designs.

Cons: The variety of statistical analysis that Minitab can perform, It Is Not As Wide As SPSS And SAS. What It Means That For Research Fields Applied With Specialized Techniques, for example, it is not the ideal option for neural networks in the field of artificial intelligence or in the case of geostatistics, Since this type of analysis will have to be programmed through the macro system.

While Macros Language is Powerful, it is a Long Time Investment for Complex Procedures.

Pros: I have been using this software since back in my college days, and it was a serious competitor to Excel. Obviously both have their perks and benefits, but I find Minitab to be better most of the time. There are a lot of tutorials in case one isn't familiar with it, which is great for first learning the software or improving over time.

Cons: I have had a hard time in the past importing data, and have had issues getting plots that I need. There should be a wider variety of models. Some graphs, especially ones with lots of data, can be difficult to read. I have experienced this across most data software I use, but it is still a con.

Overall: Overall, this is great for data analysis as a student and alright in industry. I have not come across anything in industry that I couldn't do on Excel, but I prefer Minitab since I have been using it for longer.

Pros: Minitab is a great software for statistics. I highly recommend it for my students during their last year for their graduation projects. The software is pretty simple and there are many tutorials available that help the students while using the software. Importing data is so simple and generating graphs is very easy. There are a lot of statistical tools available but I like to use ANOVA and student-t test.

Cons: Nothing so far but sometime I find it hard when it comes to printing data and reports

Overall: Minitab helps me to save a lot of time and effort. I used mainly for my students because the software is very easy and it is also available for windows and Macbooks

Pros: Minitab has incredible ease of use! Any project that incorporates charts is a simple 2 minute process in Minitab. It also has simple means of exporting the charts to whatever presentation or report vehicle utilized for a project.

Cons: If you have not had ample statistical analysis experience, or statistical basics, this program could definitely seem overwhelming for all it has to offer and what you can customize on an analysis.

Overall: I have used this product multiple times for student projects. The process to analyze data in the software is simple, and ready for presentation. Would highly recommend for use as a primary statistical analysis software!

I do statistical analysis for many of my projects, Minitab is essential for this analysis.

Pros: Any kind of statistical analysis you need done you can find with Minitab. While in many other programs it takes careful wording of equations and an innate knowledge of statistics Minitab lays it out in a very clear manner. Whether you want to run an ANOVA, a Chi-squared test, make a histogram, or run a multiple regression model Minitab offers all of this and more. Furthermore, I have spent a good amount of time going through Minitab's tutorials and those are worth their weight in gold. If you ever worry that you forgot everything from your college statistics course: don't. This program will teach you everything you need to know.

Cons: It could be better at offering ways to print your projects, it can look jumbled if you do not set it up carefully.

Overall: Not only can I run any statistical analysis that I may need, I can also learn about ones I did not previously know. And with an easy Microsoft Excel import function you can run regressions on any data sent your way.

Solid statistical software with a large amount of useful features.

Pros: MiniTab is incredible... it flattens a decade worth of Lean Six Sigma Black Belt practice into a one-stop-shop calculator tool. If you're like me, then you've built hundreds of Excel tools from first-principles... which means your transition into Minitab should be fairly easy.

As long as you take this product seriously, you'll be fine... but it's not meant for casual users.

Cons: Even understanding first principles of numerical management, this product can be a little disorienting at first. It's like a swiss army knife with a thousand tools... you're never quite sure where to find what you need.

While the product integrates well with Excel, it can be easy to make a mistake in the way your data is formatted before entering.

If you're working with someone who isn't at the LSSBB level, they literally won't understand anything about this product.

Cons: Although many options are available for individual users that make costs effective, justifying the cost of the software to my organization has been challenging.

Overall: Easy analysis, amazing graphing. The best tool for statistical analysis.

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.

Overall: 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.

Comments: If you need a statistical software that stands alone from any other system. Minitab is viable option. But, if you need it to tie to other systems to be feed the data, don't go this route. You can import data manually and copy manually, but that is it. This works the same way on export. So in other words, it is like a fancy calculator that you have sitting on your desk.

Over the years they have improved their navigation thru their menus, and added some functionality to it, but still lacks to other software packages.

If you have two or more systems that you use regularly (e.g. Virtual machine and Desktop Workstation), your license only supports one system. If you need it on both, you have to purchase a separate license. Even Autodesk has figured this out to not be a very viable option for their customers.

Be cautious about their training packages. You are not allowed to purchase a course, but only an allotted time for a course. So like most work environments, work can take priority over completing a course. So, if you do not complete it in time, you miss out.

It was a good statistical software back in their early years, but never kept up with technology and demand of the customers. And, it still has its old ghost that never were worked out of the system.

I don't suggest using this. Go with some other system that someone suggests highly, that meets the demands of this age, not an age gone past.

Vendor Response

by Minitab on April 19, 2016

PD, thank you for sharing your perspective on Minitab. Per your comment about using multiple systems, please use Help > Licensing > Move to transfer a single active license between multiple computers, at no extra charge. Only a single license can be active at any given time per the single-user license agreement, and we also offer multi-user licenses if that better meets your needs. And you can fortunately integrate Minitab with other systems to automatically import data, then create charts, run stats, etc. For assistance, please contact Tech Support at 814-231-2682.

Pros: Minitab has everything I need to perform analytics for manufacturing and the service industry. It's nice to put in large datasets and get clean graphs for my perusal. That being said, I don't know how well it functions for anything outside of Six Sigma. The Quality Trainer package is a good way to learn how to use the software as well as the major concepts behind it, especially since many of the people who go into SS or Lean frequently can stand to refresh their statistics knowledge.

The price may seem a bit steep, but it has plenty of features and, presumably, it's a necessary and deductible business expense for your consultation firm -- unless you just enjoy playing with it. That's cool, I won't judge you.

Cons: *It doesn't produce especially pretty graphs

*I prefer coding in MATLAB

*It can take a while to learn. Again, you're probably using this for a job that you'll be working for years or decades, so that's not really an issue.

Overall: I'm happy with it. Minitab does what it's supposed t do and can be extended to do more.

Pros: Minitab 18 statistical software is a great tool that can be used by different companies, colleges and universities. I started using Minitab 18 when our team needed our data analyzed, we have tried different software but Minitab has come through. The Assistant feature of the software is of great help so far, especially when facing a dilemma between two choices, the feature assists in choosing the necessary step to complete your analytical dashboard or processing. It is very easy to learn as well, being that the assistant can walk you through your first task. User-friendly.

Cons: Minitab is a bit on the pricier range when it comes to tools of the caliber.

Pros: Minitab is an intuitive basic statistical software package. It is very fast and easy to learn and use. The menu structure and tests are extremely simple to perform and understand. It is beautifully designed and the reports are very professional looking.

Cons: Minitab is not super powerful or comprehensive, it does not have every feature that you can imagine but the ease of use mostly makes up for the lack of options.

Overall: Basic statistical analysis

Pros: As I am not a statistical expert and will newer be, I would like to have a quite very basic software in our research field. What I want is to have in a singe software for basic statistical tests, experimental design (doe) , and multivariate analysis (PCA, PLS,...). Our StatGraph licence was run out, and I have tested several softwares (SPSS doe missing, SAS and MathLab far two heavy for me, R - not for me)

Also reasonable pricing for students.

Cons: Sometime you do not know right away what are the parameters behind certain menus (of course can be find in the manual).

Overall: All in one (for me)

Pros: From conventional statistical analyzes of varied data series (student notes, weight of a population, arrival times in an office) to statistical quality control through curve adjustment and probability calculations, you can do it with MiniTab.

Cons: You must know statistics to take advantage of this software. It is not appropriate for beginners. For this reason it is necessary to first learn classical statistics.

Overall: It is a useful tool in the analysis of industrial processes that I supervise: temperature of laboratories, data series corresponding to measurements of electrical magnitudes, statistical quality control apart from serving for teaching when I teach in the Diploma of Quality of my company.

Pros: Easier to use than other statistical suites. This is mainly in the form of its user interface and wording of its prompts. I find it very easy to conduct my analyses in this software which can be a pain point in my process with others. The ability to edit the graphs easily also helps when adding reference lines or shifting the axes as needed. The graphical summary option is my favorite part.

Cons: Would prefer a simpler option to test out with prior to buying a licence. Would be nice to hand that to less skilled staff to see if buying a licence would be valuable.

Excellent - Enjoy using this software for data capturing

Pros: I used Minitab for university statistics classes, and the learning curve was pretty easy for those accustomed to Excel. The software allows for much of the same analysis as excel but reduces time and difficulty in analysis.

Cons: - Visually the software looked a bit dated.

- For those not used to spreadsheet apps like Excel, Minitab would be difficult to learn.

Pros: Minitab 18 is extremely easy to use and presents a wide array of options in the analysis of both qualitative and quantitative data. It has a friendlier interface than most of the other statistical programs making it the ideal program for beginners.

Cons: The programme is not compatible with most of the programs I use making it difficult for me to import and export data. Also the programme does not analyze advanced statistics so one might need to consider other programmes like SAS.

Pros: Minitab was my go to tool at university. Having introduced to Minitab at an undergraduate course, I continued to use it for my postgraduate and work as well. It is a great software to have which allows you t visually represent and analyze your data without having to actually figure out how to use the software in detail. It is a great time saver when most of the softwares out there require an extensive background of knowledge of just how to operate them.

Cons: Minitab is lacking the intuitive user-friendly face which will make it less intimidating for a beginner to start.

Overall: Minitab helped me at university and work for showing my visual analysis of the data in a clean manner. The software itself is easy to navigate through which makes it the perfect tool for drumming up some rough data representations. As an analyst, I will continue to use Minitab in my reports!

Once I received training I discovered how useful this analytical tool is.
