Quality Companion 3 software from Minitab aids in managing and executing quality improvement projects with features including the ability to import Microsoft Visio diagrams, user-created custom data fields and categories, more powerful project manager, additional brainstorming templates, and ease-of-use improvements. The tool assists with outlining, completing, and presenting projects. At a project's start, the Project Roadmap helps plot a clear course of action. Adding built-in tools to the Roadmap creates a detailed plan for the project and the means to complete each step. More than 100 templates are provided including C&E Matrix, FMEA, and Project Charter. On-demand guidance features built-in coaches that give expert advice from experienced Six Sigma professionals. Upon project completion, the software maintains the entire project in one file, simplifying archiving and future review.
