    The new go-to software for Six Sigma analysts

    I was excited to learn that BlueSky was planning a new version that included a comprehensive Six Sigma module just in time for the new edition of The Six Sigma Handbook. Their team worked with me closely to include the most widely used statistical techniques and graphics. Their commitment to excellence was obvious.

    Pros

    I revised all of the examples in the Sixth Edition of my Six Sigma Handbook using BlueSky Statistics. Plus I rewrote all of the assignments for my online Six Sigma Green and Black Belt courses with BlueSky Statistics. BlueSky's team worked with me to include everything a practicing Six Sigma belt needs to get the job done. I'm certain that the product will continue to get better and better as time goes by.

    Cons

    There is a learning curve, as there is with any major statistics package. But once learned you will have a powerful set of statistical tools that you can take with you to new employers.

    Overall, this is a fantastic product. I use it frequently and find it seamlessly entering my workflow. All basic statistical analyses and many more complex ones are present, easy to implement, and work reliably. Huge datasets are no problem and just about anything you can do in stock R you can do with BlueSky.

    Pros

    - easy to import and transform data- surprisingly many features- R syntax is available and can be modified

    Cons

    - image export is awkward- sometimes slow to launch

    Tried it back and forth with SPSS and R to test functionality. After one yr will not support it unless a big change.

    Pros

    Make it more like SPSS or Jamovi. Using files from other software. Using ‘some R commands’.

    Cons

    Poor editing or seting up variables. Not able to connect to R without a lot of problems.

    I used very early versions (like7 or so) then there was some character encoding problem with my language which was recently solved. I will be using this software much more frequently now. I wanted this software for a clinical trial course I was teaching in Bogazici University. Maybe in future terms, now that it works perfectly across languages.

    Pros

    Most feature rich package, relative ease of use, lends itself to reproducible research (Markdown), R GUI but also has R editor, No need to know R, SPSS alternative, imports from and exports to most known formats, best user manual I ever read (skimmed), last but not least: excellent support team and a dedicated founder.

    Cons

    Menus may be overwhelming. This is hardly a con because the package is so feature rich, it cannot be presented with a simpler menu system.

    I have been extremely happy with the open source version and would encourage anyone who is being squeezed financially within their university to give it a try.

    Pros

    As many universities have had to tighten their belts, budgets for things like a subscription to SPSS have gone by the way side. BlueSky has been a real life saver. Not only does it allow for most of the statistical features, the ones that are not included can still be used with r code. While most of the time I use the graphical interface to perform the majority of tasks, sometimes there is something I need it to do that I cannot find. While I am not remotely an expert, there are plenty of experts who work in r that makes this an incredibly powerful option.

    Cons

    The three tabs are great if you have a multiple monitor setup, but when working one a single screen (i.e. a laptop), this can be incredibly inefficient to have to switch back and forth constantly between tabs.
