    hi bulldog,
    i have contacted minitab to know exactly what you are trying to find out. In a heavy regulated industry you must have your software validated. If you want to know the details of mintabs reply email me to [email protected]
    speak to you soon

    We have had many companies in pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturing validate their software.  Please call your sales representative for help.  Additionally, the procedures that we use internally to validate our software can be downloaded from: http://www.minitab.com/support/docs/softwarevalidation/default.aspx
    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Jeff;
    Thanks so much for the link.
    When we attempt to calculate Cpk by hand, using AIAG Methodology, we can not get correlation with Minitab results.
    How does Minitab calculate Cpk?  Is it based on a mean sigma shift?
    We have attempted to contact Minitab; however, we were told that the formulas used in their calcualtions are proprietary.
    Thanks in advance for your help!!
