Free Excel files for Six Sigma and business statistics

November 13th, 2008 | By: Martin Arrand

I enjoy making useful things freely available on Supply Chain View, so it’s good to find other people doing the same thing. There are 57 useful business statistics Excel files to download from the McGraw Hill website (to accompany the book Complete Business Statistics by Aczel and Sounderpandian).

Among others, there are calculations for testing difference in means, linear regression, exponential smoothing, t-tests and (as they say) many, many more.

This is a screenshot from the control chart sheet. The colours look garish (could be because I opened it with Open Office) but the calculations are sound.

Thanks sooooooooooo much for sharing the URL to excel templates. Really a boon for someone who can’t install minitab for certain reasons. Much appreciated!!
