## Description

An introduction to some of the basic functions of SigmaXL

Established in 1998, SigmaXL Inc. is a leading provider of user friendly Excel Add-ins for Lean Six Sigma graphical and statistical tools and Monte Carlo simulation.

SigmaXL® customers include market leaders like Agilent, Diebold, FedEx, Microsoft, Motorola and Shell. SigmaXL® software is also used by numerous colleges, universities and government agencies.

Our flagship product, SigmaXL®, was designed from the ground up to be a cost-effective, powerful, but easy to use tool that enables users to measure, analyze, improve and control their service, transactional, and manufacturing processes. As an add-in to the already familiar Microsoft Excel, SigmaXL® is ideal for Lean Six Sigma training and application, or use in a college statistics course.

DiscoverSim™ enables you to quantify your risk through Monte Carlo simulation and minimize your risk with global optimization. Business decisions are often based on assumptions with a single point value estimate or an average, resulting in unexpected outcomes.

DiscoverSim™ allows you to model the uncertainty in your inputs so that you know what to expect in your outputs.
