Get Lean Six Sigma Results Faster and Easier with the QI Macros Software

QI Macros Software for PC or Mac—the
Ultimate Six Sigma Power Tool—for Only $229!

Do you feel like you need to be a statistician to use SPC?  Like you’re spending too much time on documentation for your Lean Six Sigma Project?  Like you’re spending too much time drawing charts for other people?

Most Six Sigma SPC software treats your valuable time like it's an abundant resource; it's not. Avoid the high cost of multiday training. Eliminate the time it takes to import data into standalone SPC software Stop struggling with antiquated user interfaces. Start drawing charts immediately in the familiar comfort of Excel. Accelerate improvement by sharing QI Macros charts with everyone who has Excel. End the anxiety of having to explain crude, confusing charts. You don't have the time to hack your way through seven layers of decision trees to decide what chart to use nor do you have the time to figure out how to put your data into the "right" spots so that the software can go to work. Software should do as much of the thinking as possible for you; you shouldn't have to think for it.

That's why we created the QI Macros. The QI Macros SPC Software for Excel draws pareto charts, control charts, histograms, box and whisker plots, scatter plots and more. There are four "wizards" that figure out what chart or statistic to draw based on your data. Better yet we do it right in Excel. You just select your data and then select the chart from the QI Macros menu. It also includes over 90+ fill in the blank templates including SPC charts, QFD, Gage R&R, DOE, PPAP and FMEA.

Five Questions to Ask When Purchasing Six Sigma Software

  1. Is your operational and financial data in Microsoft Excel?
    • Do you want to analyze your data right in Excel or have to import it into a separate, standalone program for analysis?
    • Do you need to share the results of your analysis with internal or external customers or suppliers? Do they have Excel?
  2. Do you know how long it will take to train people to use the software? Hours or days?
    Do you know how much will it cost to train employees to use the software? Free or Fee?
  3. Do you have both PCs and Macs?
  4. Do you want to train statisticians or start improving results right away?
  5. Are you trying to scrimp on software or maximize the effectiveness of your Green Belts, Black Belts and improvement teams?

No matter what product or service you build, it must be designed for use without explanation.

Why are so many Six Sigma Black Belts adding the
QI Macros-Excel SPC software to their tool kit?

Because they do most of their work in Excel! The QI Macros provide the tools you need—control charts, pareto charts, fishbones and flowcharts—to solve problems quickly. Even if you have Minitab® or JMP, shouldn't you have an Excel-based toolkit to make you more productive?

If you're going to spend tens of thousands of dollars developing a Green or Black Belt, shouldn't you give them the tools to do their job? Once a project is done, shouldn't the Belt leave the team with QI Macros software to monitor and "Control" the ongoing performance? Too many companies try to scrimp on software when they should be trying to maximize their results from Six Sigma.

Only $229? Sounds Too Good to Be True! What's the Catch?

The QI Macros is so affordable because we let Excel do all of the heavy lifting—drawing charts, calculating formulas, handling spreadsheets and so on. We just take your data and tell Excel what to do with it to get the result you want. There is no separate application or database to manage. There are no annual subscription or maintenance fees either.

And, I want everyone to feel like they can afford these tools, so that they can start making improvements and stop trying to do this manually in Excel.

Yeah, But is it Accurate?

QI Macros output is validated using the following methods:

  1. Validated against textbook examples
  2. Validated against other SPC software

I think your products are great! They're easy to use. I can show nurses how to make control charts in no time flat. It's so much better than Minitab®... I just love it! People say 'Minitab®' and I cringe.

I’ve been using your QI Macros for the last ten years and have always found them the best and lowest cost tool available. The other “stat” and charting programs are way too expensive and complex for most of the QA people that I’ve trained.

The QI Macros has changed the conversation from fear of using complicated tools to "what does the data tell us?"
