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 like Microsoft Office Excel and virtually any other statistical

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

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

graphical output and its many unique, user-friendly features unavailable in any
other product," said Dr. Neil W. Polhemus, Chief Technology Officer of StatPoint

Sigma, and statistical process control - now including the ability to alert
