Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) February 12, 2013
KnowWare International Inc. announces the availability of the QI Macros Kaplan-Meier and Step Plot Template for Excel. The Kaplan–Meier estimator, also known as the product limit estimator, tracks product and patient survival. In medical research, it measures the percent of patients living after treatment. In economics, it can be used to measure the length of time people remain unemployed after a job loss. In engineering, it can be used to measure the time until failure of machine parts. Other applications for the Kaplan-Meier Template include ecology and numerous scientific areas. The estimator is named after Edward L. Kaplan and Paul Meier.
The Kaplan-Meier and Step Plot Template is included with the purchase of QI Macros software. The QI Macros Lean Six Sigma SPC Software works in Excel 2000-2013 (PC and MAC) and is available for immediate download. The QI Macros consist of four parts: 1) 44 charts and two “Chart Wizards” that use existing Excel data to create pareto, control charts, and histograms; 2) over 90 fill-in-the-blank templates for Lean Six Sigma; 3) a Statistics Wizard; and 4) data transformation tools like the PivotTable Wizard that automates data analysis.
Unlike complex statistical tools, the QI Macros tools can be used by anyone from students to Six Sigma Black Belts. Users most often say that the QI Macros are convenient and hassle free: they are easy to learn; they work directly on Excel data; and they automate the most commonly used Lean Six Sigma improvement tools.
The QI Macros SPC Software contains 40+ charts and over 90+ fill-in-the-blank templates that simplify Lean Six Sigma complexities. At only $199 (thousands less than competitors), they are the least expensive, most robust solution available on the market.
