About Statgraphics

Statgraphics is a business intelligence (BI) solution that helps enterprises utilize collected information to facilitate data visualization, modeling and predictive analysis. It provides professionals with interfaces for text mining, classification and regression trees, multidimensional scaling and seasonal adjustment of time series data.

Statgraphics allows businesses to construct demographic maps from SHP files and display data using dynamic population pyramids, heat maps, donut charts, time series baseline plots and more. Developers can perform equivalence/noninferiority testing and streamline statistical control processes (SPC) through Bayesian estimation and control charts. Additionally, other features include orthogonal regression, trivariate density pl...

My Statgraphics 18 Review

Descriptive Statistics, data recognition, linear regression, logistic regression, ridge regression, discriminant analysis, etc...With all the Huge graphical facilities

Pros

Large selection of Statistics procedures, easy to use, graphical facilities for Data understanding, low price

Cons

Not like SPSS Modeler (Old Clementine) : easy data join and filter from any source; facility to link the mathematical models solutions. You create and follow your own Models flow.

Reasons for Choosing Statgraphics

Really I normally use the Modeler 18.2 with Statgraphics 18 and SPSS Stats Pro 26, each of them give different possibilities, solutions and presentations

lots of stat function with good tutorials

The Statgraphics team has been very responsive when I have had technical issues with the software, typically responding to email inquiries within an hour or two. The software tutorials are very good, showing clearly how to set up an analyses and how to interpret it. The backup stat tutorials, explaining the statistics, are excellent as well.

Pros

The software is pretty intuitive and easy to use with excellent tutorials. The thing I like the most about the Statgraphics software though is the brief stat interpretations included as part of the analysis reports. For users who are not stat professionals, the interpretations are very helpful in making sure users understand the meaning of the data.

Cons

Occasionally, one of my files will get corrupted somehow and cause the program to crash every time the corrupted file is opened. The report generator is very bare bones, so exporting the report to a .rtf file then editing it with a standard text editor is necessary to achieve good formatting for printability.

Reasons for Choosing Statgraphics

Statgraphics provided the best combination of functionality and ease of use. The stat explanations built into the reports are what won me over though - they are a fantastic aid for users who are not stat professionals. JMP is a great product, but it assumes a certain level of stat knowledge and users have to hunt for the stat backup explanations. Minitab's user interface is stuck decades in the past, so even though it is very capable, it has a difficult learning curve.

Nice but not the best

Some of our R&D folks still use Statgraphics for trending, control charting, and capability analysis. Once in a great while one of them will try some comparative analysis, but usually they call me for help. Anything DOE or multiple regression related and they come to me for help and I'll use JMP instead of Statgraphics.

Pros

1) The ease of use by non-statisticians is awesome. The menus are structured to make it easy to find what you're looking for. Highly recommended for the common man who does not have a strong background in stats. 2) The Stat-Advisor is a great tool - especially for the non-statistics folks. 3) The dynamic linking of the data to the graphical reports is very nice. The ability to see the impact of new data on existing reports is a great feature.

Cons

1) The installation process is EXTREMELY painful. Because our IT rules do not allow us to have admin rights on our laptops, the multiple back-and-forth validation process imposed by Statgraphics frustrates everybody here that tries to set it up. Often this process takes days to accomplish. 2) Customer support has deteriorated greatly over the last 20 years. I've been a Statgraphics user since the 80's. Back then when you had a problem a simple email resulted in an almost immediate response - often from N.P. himself. In the last 5 years I've had many support requests or questions get completely ignored. Very disappointing to a long time user. 3) The DOE module is the weakest link in the Statgraphics chain. Even in the 80's and 90's when I loved the product and used it exclusively, our Applied Math and Statistics group used JMP for any DOE work because it is just that much better. 4) There is no scripting function or application builder utility. You can save a folio but cannot apply the analyses in that folio to a different data set like you could with a script or macro function.

Reasons for Choosing Statgraphics

Statgraphics was my first statistical software package. I've been using it for over 30 years - back when it ran in DOS. . . When my former employer was bought out the new company was standardized on JMP. JMP training was part of our Six Sigma growth so I learned JMP. Over the years I've seen my customers switch to JMP. I still support the few (less than 10) Statgraphics users in my current company, but anybody who needs to start from scratch with statistics does so with JMP. Our company standard offering is Minitab but it is ugly and lacking in way too many features to even be a serious contender.

Statgraphics software for Facile and Accurate Analysis - for Statisticians and Nonstatisticians

I have used Statgraphics to solve drug quality problems, validate processes, develop sampling plans, assess capability to meet requirements, set specifications, assess process control, identify factors that control outputs, perform simulations, among many others.

Pros

The software explanatory text and graphics with every analysis.

Cons

Software updates appear too infrequently.

Why I chose Statgraphics

The ability to use valid statistics in non-traditional manufacturing environments where your basic X-Bar R charts are not valid. Batch processes. Autocorrelated processes. Non-Normal capability analysis. Statgraphics gives you the ability to analyze and interpret circumstances and manufacturing issues that are not always straightforward or "normal".

Pros

I have been using Statgraphics software in it's evolving forms for many years and have pulled it into every company I have worked at - across industries. There are several features that make this a must have software in every manufacturing environment. It is a powerful package that has all the tools needed for the advanced statistician, but is user friendly enough for those who may only have a rudimentary understanding of statistical techniques and premises. The stat-advisor, confirms the experience of experts while guiding the less experienced with the knowledge of when a statistical technique or method is valid or not, or under what premise the analysis is valid. Statgraphics has helped me throughout my professional quality career to gain knowledge and experience that has allowed me to use these powerful tools to improve processes, reduce scrap, and provide data-based advice.

Cons

Pricey - but worth it. It is less a function of cost and more a function of value.
