Pros: Sigma XL provides a graphical interface for a lot of the statistical features included in the back end of Excel. It also was one of the easiest ways to do a couple of simple graphical charts that were previously unavailable in Office (Pareto charts and Box Plots). The templates section enables set up of sheets that help with the learning curve for how data should be layed out to use SigmaXL.

With SIgmaXL you also get access to a bunch of higher level tools, from tools used for descriptive or inferential statistics, to Design of Experiments.

Great bang for the buck!

Cons: Some of the tools can take a bit of time performing the calculations. Graphical interface is a bit dated and can be tricky for new users to navigate. I also miss the ability to perform more advanced Time Series Analysis.

Overall: We typically use SigmaXL to perform basic statistical analysis and MSAs. We also use this tool when teaching our Green and Black belt courses as this is one of the more affordable tools that incorporates with software most people already have on their PCs.

Pros: We have been SigmaXL fans for years due to its ease of use features, simple and logical navigation, complete set of tools and templates, and value for money!

Cons: SigmaXL has compiled a great suite of quality and statistical tools. While not really a "con", I would like to see a robust "General Linear Model" tool but... with all the other tools, including a variety of DOE options, once can't be too greedy. :-)

Overall: We use SigmaXL both for teaching as well as the projects our team engages in across virtually all industry sectors. SigmaXL's customer service is excellent... responsive and quick to provide solutions, advice, and support.

Pros: This software is easy to use and its on Excel. Great plus.

Cons: There are bugs that make it crash every now and then.

My clients ask more frequently for a free alternative like R and Python when it comes to Data Science. Even Excel is catching up. Get faster developing. Too slow.

Overall: It is a great tool to replace the more expensive SPSS or Minitab for basic Data Analytics. Great advantage is that no programming is required. And, it sits on Excel everyone uses.

Pros: I love that SigmaXL is compatible for Mac. Many of our Green Belt and Black Belt students are mac users. I also like how it is an add-on to Excel, it makes it easily accessible for analyzing exported data. I use it all the time.

Cons: While I like the Control Chart selection tool, I wish that the selection tool expanded to include other types of tools.

Overall: I truly appreciate SigmaXL's level of service. They are so knowledgeable and their response times are exceptional. Great company to work with!

Pros: It has all of the tools needed by Six Sigma Black Belts, plus it's easy to use. The low cost is also a big plus.

Cons: I really don't have any cons. If I have to stretch I guess it's not being stand-alone might be considered a "con". I.e., you need to have access to Microsoft Excel.

Overall: SigmaXL is the Pyzdek Institute's choice for students whose Minitab licenses expire before they complete training. We pay for a 1-year Minitab license since our training uses it for assignments. However, SigmaXL has everything students need and it's available at a much lower price. Another big advantage over Minitab (for our students) is that SigmaXL is a perpetual license, while our Minitab licenses expire after 1 year.

Pros: I Appreciate the color coding of results and the explanations of resultant stats.

Cons: i have had difficulty importing data files... that may be an operator issue and not software.

Overall: I have used it to analyze customer usage of public facilities ( can't say more than that) and demonstrate to skeptics how easy it is to get results from data and not rely on opinion/belief.

i have been exposed to other software packages and not found them to be as friendly to use.

Pros: Ease of use. Everyone is familiar with Excel, so it's easy to use SigmaXL

Cons: I have experienced both "freezing" of the software and a challenge getting it installed on clients' computers.

Overall: I use it for project statistical analysis and to train others in continuous improvement. I come from a Minitab background and I find SigmaXL is good value.
