Our SPC software, SPC for Excel, performs ANOVA for one to five factors. ANOVA allows you to determine if there are significant differences between treatments. The ANOVA output for the factors and models is shown above. More of the ANOVA output is shown below. Our software includes, among the features listed below, a full residual analysis with potential outliers in red. It also includes three methods for determining which means are significantly different as well as two methods for checking the equality of variances.
