Data Analysis

Format E-Learning

By analyzing data using statistical methods and tools, you can reveal the basic nature and behavior of a process and show how stable or unstable a process is. Data analysis enables you to determine how well or how poorly a process is currently performing, determine relationships between process variables, identify possible root causes behind variations in quality, and determine possible methods for process improvement.

In this easy-to-follow eLearning course, equipped with engaging voice-over narration and compelling content-supporting visuals, animations, and hands-on interactions, learn the fundamentals of data analysis, including the concept of probability, normal and binomial probability distribution types, and common and special cause variation. Review practical, real-life examples to reinforce your understanding and work through interactive activities and knowledge checks to apply what you’ve learned.
