Sample automated Minitab graphs:

A Batch Production Graph with held batches circled and downgraded
batches marked with an X.

A graph which uses “Project” lines to simulate a native line / bar
graph.
(Keywords: bar / line, project) 

A scatterplot of Natural Gas consumption vs average degree
days.  This data is used to develop a linear regression model.

This graph shows actual gas consumption vs the model
predicted consumption.  The bottom panel shows the deviation
between the two.  Success would be the deviation going
downward. 
(Keywords: macro, layout, model vs actual, regression)

To track year over year consumption and cost the macro
calculates cummulative values based on the raw data and
then plots the data in two panels.

Control charts in Minitab are less customizable than
“native” graphs but you can still add sub-titles, footnotes, etc.
(Keywords: Control Chart, SubTitles, Footnotes)

A run status graph showing the output from Ontario, Canada
windfarms.  It creates a variable which is the output rounded
to the nearest 10%.  That value is then used to define the scatterplot
groups.  By having the size of the plot symbol increase as the value
represented increases, the graph can be interpreted intuitively.

A graph demonstrating the ability of Minitab graphs to have
multiple panels – here one for each wind station.  Note: panel
options have been used to provide a little separation between
panels, to put the tick labels on one side only, etc.  The dates
have been formatted in International format and then rotated
at 90 degrees to allow more ticks to be labelled.

 A graph showing the capability of many processes in one
two panel graph.  See How To section for code & explanation.

A graph showing the capability of many processes in a normalized
Process Capability Space.  See How To section for code & explanation.  
(Keywords: Process Capability, Layout, Panel)

A macro programming reference graph showing the 30 plotting symbols available.  (Yes you can interactively change a graph and then copy the code into the clipboard, but sometimes you just want to change / create the code directly).  Note: you can also use data labels centered on a plot symbol of type 0 (i.e. not shown), to use digits or letters as pseudo plot symbols.

A macro programming reference graph showing the 128 colours available for Minitab(r) graph symbols, lines, etc.
