The View Model dialog displays information to help you determine whether you are using the correct model to generate predictions.
Minitab automatically stores the most recent model for a response variable each time you run the analysis. Any model that you previously fit for that response variable is overwritten. For this reason, verify that the currently stored model is the correct model.
Predict does not use the data in the worksheet. Instead, Minitab estimates the predictions based on a stored model. You must fit a model before you can predict the response value for new observations. Predictions are accurate only if the model represents the true relationships.
