Using Analysis of Variance —
A Practical Approach
Perform Statistical Analysis Without Being a Statistician

Thursday, Sept. 17, 2020 • 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EDT

How much would it help your Quality Management System if you were also an expert statistician?

While you can’t become one in 90 minutes, you can master a powerful statistical technique in that time — Analysis of Variance (ANOVA).

The answer lies in a tool you already have and use: Microsoft Excel.

Dan O’Leary, president of Ombu Enterprises, will help you understand ANOVA and how to use it. He’ll explain this statistical powerhouse’s concepts. He will even skip over the complicated equations, since Excel’s built-in set of macros, the Analysis ToolPak, will handle these details.

Data collection is an important issue, especially avoiding bias. Dan will impart how to randomize data collection — and use Excel to generate the random numbers you need.

He’ll share how to access the ToolPak, which one to use and how to understand the results.

You’ll be able to perform the data analysis and focus on the results and their meaning, all while letting Excel work out the computational details in the background.

With the information you need to help determine the effect on your processes, you’ll move them light years ahead of the competition.

Webinar Takeaways:

  • The underlying idea that makes ANOVA work

  • The data collection issues you should plan

  • How to get access to ANOVA in Excel

  • Entering the data

  • Selecting among the options

  • Interpreting the result

Just bring a basic understanding of both Excel (entering data, selecting ranges, etc.) and quality improvement methods.

Easily access this effective statistical technique no matter your grasp of statistics or equations. Unlock the ANOVA magic within Excel and take your QMS to the next level. Join us by registering today.
