Graph Templates

Graph templates can be used to add different templates related to graphically visualizing the data to your active workbook. These templates can be found under Add Templates in the main menu.

The following templates are available within Graphs:

Bar Chart

This template can be used to create a bar chart for a diven data set. Typically used for discrete data to compare groups.

Box Plot

This template can be used to create a box plot for a given data set. Typically used for continuous data to compare groups.

Contour Plot

This template can be used to create a countour plot for a given function equation. Typically used for continuous data to visualize nature of function surface.

Dot Plot

This template can be used to create a dot plot for a given data set. Typically used for continuous data to compare groups.

Histogram

This template can be used to create a histogram for a given data set. Typically used for continuous data to visualize nature of distribution.

Individual Value Plot

This template can be used to create an individual value plot for a given set of data. Typically used for continuous data to compare groups.

Interval Plot

This template can be used to create a plot to compare the confidence interval range for the mean for different data sets. Typically used for continuous data.

Matrix Plot

This template can be used to compare multiple sets of data to determine if any of them are related to each other.

Multi Vari Chart

This template can be used to compare the spread between different groups of data to determine where the variation is coming from. Typically used for continuous data.

Pareto Chart

This template can be used to determine the vital few from the trivial many. Typically used for discrete data.

Pie Chart

This template can be used to compare different groups of data. Typically used for discrete data.

Probability Plot

This template can be used to create a probability plot to determine the nature of distribution of the given data set. Typically used for continuous data.

Relationship Diagram

This template can be used to create a relationship diagram which can be used to graphically show the relationship between causes and effects. This diagram can be used to determine the most important cause.

Run Chart

This template can be used to create a run chart of the given data set to determine if the process has any special patterns. Typically used for continuous data.

Scatter Plot

This template can be used to create a scatter plot of the data to determine if there is any relationship between two sets of data. Typically used for continuous data.

Time Series Plot

This template can be used to create a time series plot of the data to view the historical performance of a given data set. Typically used for continuous data.

Waterfall Chart

This template can be used to create a waterfall chart - also known as the walk chart or the bridge chart. It can be used to show how the different variables impact the transformation from one variable into the other.
