Columbus, Ohio (February 22, 2011) –, the leading global provider of online Lean Six Sigma training and support technologies, today released EngineRoom 5.1, the latest version of its Microsoft® Excel®-based data analysis tool. Featuring new Lean and financial templates, ease-of-use features, and chart and tool enhancements, EngineRoom 5.1 delivers even greater capability to process improvement professionals looking for affordable, all-purpose statistical software.

EngineRoom 5.1 builds on its existing power and utility with the inclusion of four new Lean and finance templates not found in other data analysis software:

  1. Core Process Pull Lean template
  2. Replenishment Pull Lean template
  3. Standard Work Lean template
  4. Financial Return Calculator

This update features added functionality to a number of the existing 35+ Lean Six Sigma tools and templates, including Attribute Measurement System Analysis (Attribute MSA), ANOVA with Blocking, Fishbone Diagram, C&E Matrix, Gantt Chart, and the CTQC Tree Diagram. Additionally, EngineRoom 5.1 greatly simplifies the installation process through a single download file that automatically detects and installs to the correct version of Excel. This version of EngineRoom is fully compatible with 64-bit versions of Excel.

With its familiar spreadsheet platform, EngineRoom is ideal for process improvement professionals and organizational deployments who want to avoid the steep learning curve and high cost associated with standalone data analysis software. Designed for both beginners and experts, EngineRoom provides dozens of the most commonly used LSS tools and templates in Excel through an additional ribbon or drop-down menu. The interface is directly aligned with the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) workflow, so users can quickly locate and apply tools in parallel with their project completion. Technical support includes an extensive help file and an ever-expanding online Resource Center with tutorials, software updates, and other resources.
