QI Macros - the All in One Tool for Quality Professionals

SPC Charts - Lean Six Sigma Templates - Statistics - Data Mining

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.

Histograms with Cp and Cpk

QI Macros creates histograms, frequency histograms and Weibull histograms for non-normal data. All histograms calculate process capability metrics like Cp, Cpk and Pp Ppk. Histograms will prompt you for your specification limits and use them for these calculations. Specification limits are drawn on the histogram along with a bell curve.
