What our users are saying about our products...

“Design-Expert software, version 10, executes all the design and analysis even more efficiently than the very good DX9.”
— Kurt Schroeder, DOE Scientist

“I've used several statistical packages in the past and I find Design-Expert® to be the best DOE software I've ever used.  It is thorough, flexible, easy to use and it guides you through the interpretation of results.  I have not seen that in other software packages. Good Job!”
—Stephen P Maggio, Quality Director, Onyx Specialty Papers, Inc.

"I absolutely love Design-Expert and I am thrilled to have Version 9. It's my go-to statistical software not only for designing experiments, but also for analyzing data that was not necessarily generated from a formal DOE. I'm often amazed at how much information I can extract from such post hoc analyses using Design-Expert."

—Michel Laurent, Scientist, Rush University Medical Center

"I would like to congratulate you guys for the nice work on Design-Expert software. I have used Design-Expert since v6, in my previous experience in the pharmaceutical industry and Masters/PhD work. In my opinion, among all the software available for DOE, Design-Expert is the most friendly and complete package; I am a big fan of it." 
—Márcia Cristina Breitkreitz, Professor, State University of Campinas, Brazil

"I have enjoyed using your software for a number of years now. This evaluation helped me to show a colleague how awesome and easy-to-use Design-Expert software really is. We were able to design, run, and analyze a few real experiments in a short amount of time. I will continue to use and promote your software as being 'best of breed' for DOE."
—John Snider, Staff Systems Engineer, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences

"I have used Design-Expert software since the DOS days and it is an incredibly versatile and useful program. As a scientist at Monsanto we had a group license and used it for analyzing our experimental designs. At a coating company I worked for, I used it to analyze process vs. chemistry changes in graphical arts coatings. Now, as a manager at ELG Utica Alloys (Hartford), I am using it once again to optimize our production processes...I cannot emphasize how much this program has assisted me in my career for creating the best solutions to (near) impossible problems. I have been using it since college and in reality!

I truly believe in the product and what it can do for understanding the massive amount of data people collect. Many people do not even realize they have the solutions to complex issues. I enjoy using the 3D surface graphs for presentations (a picture is worth a thousand characters) and the ability to use so many different models at the speed of electrons is phenomenal."
—John Sulewski, Manager, ELG Utica Alloys (Hartford)

“The software is so user friendly that even a non-statistician can work through it.”
—Mahesh Aithal, R&D Scientist, Biocon Research Limited

"We also recently purchased a license for a network version of Design-Expert. The software is, in my opinion, best in class. It is extremely easy to use, has great annotations in the analysis to help with interpretation of results, and the graphics are top-notch. This is the only software I would recommend for DOE—and it is why I asked my new employer to make our recent purchase.

I am a long-time user and subscriber to the DOE FAQ Alert and Stat-Teaser newsletters. Thanks for the follow-up. We are making good use of the software on a daily basis."
—Bob Solimeno, Sr. Scientist, Collins Ink Corporation

"It is enjoyable to interact with a company that makes a great product, is easy to work with, has a web site that functions properly, and is still run by human beings who care about delivering a great product and helping customers find solutions."
—Jon Hocker, Global Business Development Manager, John Bean Technologies Corporation

I upgraded to 8.0.5 last week and love it! I believe that Stat-Ease is ahead of the curve relative to their "competition" by introducing a QbD function to the software. Nice job!
—Jim Carey, Process Validation Consultant, A.N.D. Consulting, Inc.

"I have found this one of the easiest and user intuitive programs that I have ever used. The learning curve was very short and before I knew it, I was using the program with confidence. What more can I say. I realize that I have not used the program to its fullest extent, however, I am able to use it as a valuable tool and will recommend it to our company as a standard tool."
—Gary Sutton, Senior Project Engineer, Globe Motors

"Thanks for your good work. Design Expert is great! I am recommending it to my clients."
—David Rigg, Technical Consultant, David Rigg Consulting, Australia

"I had some response surface work to do last month, and after the recent training class that used Design-Expert 8 (DX8), there was no way I could use 7 to do the work—8 is just such a big step forward in usability."
—Nicholas Chope, R&D Engineer, Boston Scientific

"I have always been a fan of Stat-Ease and the Design-Expert software. The latest version does not disappoint! You consistently provide a high-level statistics and graphics program and still make it easy to use. Excellent! I would recommend this to anyone performing designed experiments for product development, process development or even failure analysis."
—Jenifer Marchesi, Ph.D., Consultant, Chemistry & Polymers, Altran Solutions

"Congratulations! I want to compliment you on Design-Expert 8. This software is absolutely wonderful. In fact, it is so good that I don't want to go back to Design-Expert 7 even though I have that software on my computer, too. If you ask what the difference is, my answer is that it is easy to use with everything at one's fingertips...This software for DOE is a dream...Again, your new version 8 software for DOE is terrific. Keep up the great work."
—Harlan Faller, Sr. Technologist, Johnstech

"Design-Expert is a terrific companion to the DOE textbooks I’m learning from. I’m not sure that I would be patient enough to crank through tedious ANOVA calculations and half-normal plots by hand. It has enabled me to apply an elegant subject (Experimental Design) to what I really like to do—synthetic organic chemistry, and process design. Its features are well thought out, and I am regularly surprised by something I didn’t know was there. A few days ago I found the feature that allows me to change the design generator when working with fractional factorial designs. Very handy! I’ve gushed enough about my love for your product. All the best!"
—Artie McKim, Technical Director, Gaylord Chemical Company LLC

"THANK YOU... I love this software. It makes DOE such an easy tool to use. DOE is So very powerful, I look like a GENIUS to my co-workers. They have been trying to solve this for over a year. It is simple with DOE."
—Senior Quality Engineer, Grand Rapids, MI

"No doubt that Design Expert is an excellent piece of software but above all I feel that your speedy replies to technical problems, online support materials, the Stat-Ease newsletter and training are the backbone to it! Your books on DOE and RSM Simplified and the training courses in Minneapolis really helped me in understanding the core techniques of experimental design. I loved the side bars in your books, your training materials, and of course the videos during breaks in the training session in Minneapolis. Thank you once again for all your help and support."
—Mahesh Shivhare, The University of Newcastle

"The software has worked wonderfully in our hands. I have found it easy to use and the support (both through the Help menus and personal support from Stat-Ease) to be instrumental in building my confidence with the program and DOE."
—David Cirelli, Wyeth BioPharma

"Thanks again for your continued effort to serve your customers with a great overall design of experiments package. This package includes great: software, technical support, publicity support, statistical consulting help, web site resources, courses, and now webinars."
—Arved Harding, Statistician, Eastman Chemical Company

"I'm very excited and eager to see the latest and greatest from you. Your software is the cadillac of DOE software."
—Thomas Pyzdek, Author of The Six Sigma Handbook, The Quality Engineering Handbook, and The Handbook of Quality Management

"I must say that I recently used Design-Expert (then still version 6) for a mixture design for 14 ingredients, which worked absolutely brilliantly. I had a trainee do the testing and come up with a beautiful-tasting result for a very difficult nutritional product, where all the standard industry knowledge did not work. I was most impressed and it again proved to me how powerful DOE is. I just this week used the design again as the client wanted the nutrition objectives rebalanced and did new optimizations which worked well. This shows the power of having data you can just go back to and use, without even having to retest lots."
—Anny Dentener, Adecron Food Tech Consulting, New Zealand, March 2007

"Software is almost indispensable in designing experiments...special purpose software...will be needed in some circumstances...with strong emphasis on Design-Expert, which has certain features reminiscent of expert systems..."
—Tom Ryan, page 1, "Modern Experimental Design, Wiley-Interscience ©2007

"Stat-Ease Design-Expert® software has allowed me to quickly implement DOE experimentation into my daily development work. DOE is no longer the unmanageable and confusing task it once was. With each step in the analysis the software provides a written description of the statistical result, so I do not have to grab a statistics book off the shelf to remind myself."
—Kim Paulsen, Ph.D., Scientist III, DiaSorin Inc. (Minnesota)

"The support manual for your application is just about the best I have ever read for any product... I have genuinely enjoyed reading the Stat-Ease manual again and working through the examples. Thank you again for writing a manual that makes me eager to try and break the product that comes along with it.

It is always an extra burden for those who distribute fundamentally advanced capabilities, that they must also educate as well as market to potential targets. Based on your willingness to do that and then do it well, you all deserve all the success that you can possibly achieve."
—Stephen Puryear, Novartis Quality Engineer (California)

"Your product is the best—especially for users not well acquainted with statistical methods. The manual is outstanding, also. Again, it is written to appeal to a diverse audience."
