Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
KnowWare International Inc. announces a 30-day trial of the QI Macros Lean Six Sigma Software for Excel 2011 on the Macintosh. With the increasing use of the Apple Macintosh in business environments ranging from manufacturing to healthcare, more companies are turning to Excel 2011 and the QI Macros to conduct Six Sigma projects quickly and efficiently at a a reasonable cost. Many universities teaching Six Sigma have students with Macintoshes that need Six Sigma tools to complete their homework assignments. While it's not impossible to do a Six Sigma project without Six Sigma software, it usually takes too long and employees lose interest.
The QI Macros add-in for Microsoft Excel automates all of the charts and diagrams required for statistical process control (SPC) and Lean Six Sigma. The QI Macros consist of four parts: 1) 30 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 that automatically analyzes data; and 4) data transformation tools like the PivotTable Wizard that automates data analysis.
Unlike most complex statistical tools, the QI Macros tools can be used by anyone from nurses to Six Sigma Black Belts. Users most often say that the QI Macros are convenient and hassle free: 1) Easy to learn. The pull-down menu gives immediate access to all tools; 2) Works directly on Excel data; and automates the most commonly used Lean Six Sigma improvement tools.
The QI Macros Lean Six Sigma SPC Software works in Excel 2011 on the Macintosh and is available for immediate download. The QI Macros have been simplifying process improvement and Lean Six Sigma for tens of thousands of customers since 1997. Thousands of hospitals use the QI Macros to improve clinical outcomes and patient flow.
