AstenJohnson University is offering a class in Fundamental Data Analysis –SC campus.

This 2 ½ day course is designed for individuals who are relatively new to papermaking or in a new position at the mill. Also the course is excellent for those responsible for monitoring and improving process performance or product quality. This training is great for non-manufacturing roles as well. The class size is small – 12 to 16 participants – to allow for plenty of discussion along with classroom instruction. To take advantage of the available expertise in the classroom, participants are encouraged to bring their own data from a process improvement project. After learning a tool in Minitab by application on a training set of data, the class will have opportunity to apply the tool on their own data with guidance and input from the instructor.
