Good decisions are based on good data and good analytical skills

Got into VBA-programming to kill some time during business trips. Started with adding macros to Excel Workbooks with focus on generating multiple line/bar charts of multiple variables in an easy way. Then added some control charts and finally got into Weibull calculations (life data analysis) with its difficult iterative procedures to find extrema. Moved from Excel-VBA to VSTO2010 which allows to deploy the code in an installer package.
