Minitab, the leading provider of software for quality improvement, is offering a free webinar to highlight how its process improvement software can support Lean Six Sigma projects. “Meet Quality Companion” will be held on May 19, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. EDT (GMT-4:00). Registration is free at www.minitab.com/training/web-events/ Space is limited.
Starting in 2011 The Pyzdek Institute provides all of its online training students with 1-year licenses for Quality Companion, as well as Minitab. Quality Companion provides a large number of useful tools to help practitioners with their projects. These include a number of tools that are designed to help organize and track individual projects as they move through the DMAIC process, as well as tools to help design reports and presentations. It is possible to create customize Quality Companion templates for other types of projects, as well as for other purposes. For example, Pyzdek Institute students are provided with Quality Companion templates designed to reflect the training modules included in their particular training class.
In addition, Quality Companion integrates the various parts of the project. For example, variables identified as possible causes on a fishbone diagram are automatically shown when performing other analyses.
Besides being useful for managing individual projects, Minitab provides a free dashboard product that allows managers, Master Black Belts, and Black and Green Belts to keep track of portfolios of Quality Companion projects.
The complete webinar announcement, which includes a video overview of Quality Companion, is available here.
