How to Run a Bartlett’s Test in Minitab

What’s a Bartlett’s Test?

Bartlett’s Test is a hypothesis test that determines whether a statistically significant difference exists between the variances of two or more independent sets of normally distributed continuous data. It is useful for determining if a particular strata or group could provide insight into the root cause of process issues.

An example would be if Assembly Line A product weights have a variance of 1 gram, Assembly Line B product weights have a variance of 2 grams and Assembly Line C product weights have variance of 2.5 grams and you want to determine if any of the 3 lines truly has less/more variation than the others or if the difference is just due to random chance
