Denver, CO (PRWEB) April 16, 2007
The QI Macros SPC Software is available for immediate download, complete with a new "ribbon" user interface for Excel 2007. The QI Macros have been simplifying process improvement and Lean Six Sigma for tens of thousands of customers since 1996. Thousands of hospitals use the QI Macros to improve clinical outcomes (i.e., fewer deaths, disabilities, and medication errors) and patient flow. Thousands of businesses ranging from automotive suppliers to state and Federal government use the QI Macros to help reduce costs and boost productivity and profitability. The new edition leverages the power of Excel 2007's new "ribbon" to make the QI Macros even easier to use.
Jay Arthur, the creator of the QI Macros, used to spend four-to-eight hours training workers how to choose the right control chart from the seven most common ones. Jay realized that since the QI Macros were already examining the available data, it would be possible to go ahead and choose the most likely chart. Like the "I Feel Lucky" button on Google, the 2007 edition of the QI Macros includes a Control Chart Wizard which can analyze your data and choose the right chart in seconds.
The QI Macros are the "Swiss Army Knife" of tools for companies embracing Lean Six Sigma which combines the speed and quality of the Toyota Production System (TPS). The QI Macros are an add-in for Microsoft Excel that does the math and draws the graphs required for SPC -- Statistical Process Control. It also includes fill-in-the-blank templates for more exotic Six Sigma tools like Design of Experiments (DOE) and Quality Function Deployment (QFD) -- two key elements of Design for Six Sigma. The QI Macros SPC Software contains 20 charts and over 60 fill-in-the-blank templates for simplifying the complexities of Lean Six Sigma.
