(StatPoint Technologies, Warrenton, VA) -- StatPoint Technologies Inc., a leading developer of statistical tools used in data analysis across the spectrum of business management, manufacturing, and scientific research, recently announced the immediate availability of Statgraphics Centurion XVI. This new version offers users a powerful, menu-driven statistical data analysis solution that enables organizations of any size to identify critical information that will improve operational efficiencies. In support of this launch, StatPoint is offering organizations a free 30-day trial copy of Statgraphics Centurion XVI. To obtain a copy go to http://www.statgraphics.com/downloads.htm .

Statgraphics Centurion XVI can be applied in every aspect of business operations, from Six Sigma management protocols to quality control on production lines to improving shipping department processes. This product release encompasses significant new and unique features that provide greater ease-of-use and enhanced power that separate it from the competition. Enhancements to the roster of statistical procedures, changes to the user interface, refinements to existing procedures, data handling improvements, and expanded graphic options are all a part of the new version. Key new features to Statgraphics Centurion XVI include:

• Design of experiments (DOE) wizard assists users in constructing and analyzing designed experiments. It guides a user through 12 important steps in the creation and application of the design.

• Real-time alerts (StatAlert) are built into the software to alert people responsible for monitoring an organization’s processes when something starts to go wrong. Statgraphics Centurion XVI can be set to automatically generate alerts whenever certain conditions occur. Message boxes, audio alarms, and automatic e-mail notification are available options.

• Competitive compatibility (StatImport) enables users to accept data from programs such as Microsoft Office Excel and virtually any other statistical package. Though every competing statistical package produces some graphical output, Statgraphics Centurion XVI remains unmatched in this category. With its StatGallery feature, users can compare multiple data sets or multiple views of the same data, placing graphs side by side or overlapping—creating unique displays of their own. With its ability to accept data from other statistical packages, Statgraphics Centurion XVI can replace less satisfactory graphical output from other programs.

• Dynamic graphics enable users to grab 3-D plots and rotate them or to see the effect on surface plots of interactively changing variables in the underlying statistical model. In addition, there is a zoom and pan feature that allows users to pan back and forth through large amounts of data. 


“Statgraphics is helping our company identify manufacturing improvement opportunities across all critical area processes,” says Les Garcia, quality assurance manager of Gunze Electronics USA Corp. “The products ease-of-use has made statistical process control implementation very straightforward and the DOE module is an excellent tool. We are very impressed with it from a pricing standpoint as well as its ability to analyze and present data to all levels of technical and management staff.”

In challenging times it is especially important to identify and exploit every opportunity for savings, for quality improvement, and for driving efficiencies. It is more important than ever for companies and organizations to accurately forecast cash flows and determine where to devote precious time and resources. They need guidance to reach correct decisions on where to focus product development to meet the true demands of the marketplace. Statistical analysis of data is crucial to all such efforts. Statgraphics Centurion XVI provides the tools necessary to perform these and many other improvement and research initiatives with ease.

“For many users, the value of Statgraphics Centurion XVI lies in its uncomplicated structure, the vivid, interpretive visual images created in its graphical output, and its many unique, user-friendly features unavailable in any other product,” says Dr. Neil W. Polhemus, chief technology officer of StatPoint Technologies. “For others, its clear superiority for design of experiments, Six Sigma, and statistical process control—now including the ability to alert managers by email whenever a process deviates from the expected range—is winning converts every day from our competitors. Our solution meets today’s tight budget constraints and does not require a Master’s degree in statistics to successfully implement. Our clients will improve their products, processes and margin with Statgraphics Centurion XVI.”
