Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
KnowWare International Inc. announces new features for the QI Macros Lean Six Sigma SPC Software. Even after weeks of Lean Six Sigma training, most people are confused about which chart or statistic to choose. To help jump start their improvement efforts, the QI Macros have been designed to help people over the hurdle of charting and statistical analysis. The QI Macros wizards can analyze a user's data and select the correct analysis to perform. The QI Macros is the only SPC Software with this functionality.
QI Macros Wizards include:
The Chart Wizard which analyzes data and chooses the right charts to run. It saves users time and mistake proofs the chart selection process. Now users can spend their time on more important things like analyzing the charts after they are drawn.
The Control Chart Wizard will analyze data and choose the right control chart from seven possible charts: c, np, p, u, XmR, XbarR or XbarS. Most Six Sigma workshops spend hours teaching decision trees that are built right into the QI Macros code.
The PivotTable Wizard will take up to four columns of tabular data and summarize them using Excel's PivotTable function. Even seasoned Excel users are baffled at how to use PivotTables, but most improvement projects will spring from PivotTable Analysis.
The Statistics Wizard will analyze data and choose the right hypothesis tests to run. Hypothesis testing can seem pretty complex and challenging, but at the heart the question is whether the means and variances of two or more samples are the same or different. The Statistics Wizard will figure out the correct analysis to run and will interpret the results for the user. No more p values to evaluate.
