Today, Minitab is often used in conjunction with the implementation of Six sigma, CMMI and other statistics-based process improvement methods.
Minitab 17, the latest version of the software, is available in 8 languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, & Spanish.
Minitab Inc. produces two other products that complement Minitab 16: Quality Trainer, an eLearning package that teaches statistical tools and concepts in the context of quality improvement that integrates with Minitab 16 to simultaneously develop the user's statistical knowledge and ability to use the Minitab software and Quality Companion 3, an integrated tool for managing Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing projects that allows Minitab data to be combined with project management and governance tools and documents.
