SPC Software Comparison

Not All SPC Software is Created Equal

If you are shopping for Statistical Process Control or Six Sigma software you have several things to consider:

  • Do you want a separate, stand-alone software application or something that works right in Microsoft Excel where most of your data is located?
  • What is the statistical expertise of your users and how much time do you have to train them?
  • Do your users have other job responsibilities besides creating charts and other improvement documentation?
  • How much money do you have in your budget?

Whether evaluating based on ease of use, price, or features and functionality we believe the QI Macros comes out on top. Take a look and decide for yourself.

I trialed eight different spc software and spc for excel addins within the same price range and nothing even comes remotely close to the QI Macros. There was no comparison.
