If you or your business are looking to be serious about data analysis and to solve significant business problems, and there are more than a few people in your organization who have been trained on Minitab, or you are looking to become a full-time Six Sigma consultant, then Minitab would be a good option.
SigmaXL is a great option for those familiar with Excel and don’t need a “power user” application such as Minitab. Excel will have its limitations when running an analysis with multiple interactions and variables, this is where Minitab will perform best. SigmaXL is also a lower cost alternative.
