SPC Software Comparison

You'll Never Have to Struggle with an SPC Chart Again!

If you are shopping for SPC Software or Lean Six Sigma software you have several things to consider:

  • Are you comfortable with complexity or do you just want answers?
  • What is the statistical expertise of your users and how much time do you have to train them?
  • Do you want a separate, stand-alone SPC software application or something that works right in Microsoft Excel where most of your data is located?
  • 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 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.
