Identify and list potential problems

Identify and list all potential problems that need to be addressed in the Pareto analysis. Consider any issues or challenges that are impacting the overall process. This task is crucial for gathering a comprehensive list of problems that need to be analyzed.

Collect sufficient data related to each problem

Collect all relevant data related to each problem identified in the previous task. This includes any data points, measurements, or observations that are needed to analyze the severity and frequency of each problem.

1

Customer complaints

2

Production errors

3

Downtime records

4

Quality control data

5

Employee feedback

Calculate and assign a frequency score to each problem

Calculate a frequency score for each problem identified in the previous task. Frequency score represents how often each problem occurs. This will help in prioritizing the problems for further analysis and action.

Calculate and assign a severity score for each problem

Calculate a severity score for each problem identified in the previous task. Severity score represents the impact or seriousness of each problem. This will help in prioritizing the problems for further analysis and action.

Multiply frequency and severity scores to obtain a priority number for each problem

Multiply the frequency score and severity score for each problem to obtain a priority number. This priority number will be used to rank the problems in the next task.

Rank problems as per priority number

Rank the problems identified in the previous task as per their priority number. This ranking will help in determining which problems should be addressed first.

Create the Pareto chart using the problem, frequency, severity and priority number

Create a Pareto chart using the problem list, frequency scores, severity scores, and priority numbers. The chart will visually represent the impact and priority of each problem.

Identify the 80/20 rule, identifying the top 20% problems contributing to 80% of the total score

Identify the top 20% of problems that contribute to 80% of the total score. These problems are the most critical and should be prioritized for further analysis and action.

Formulate strategies to tackle the problems identified in the 20% category

Formulate strategies and action plans to address the problems identified in the top 20% category. These strategies should be targeted towards resolving the most critical and impactful problems.

Approval: Management for formulated strategies

Will be submitted for approval:

Implement the strategies approved by management

Implement the strategies and action plans approved by management to tackle the identified problems. This may include process changes, training programs, or any other necessary actions.

Monitor and track progress after implementation of strategies

Monitor and track the progress made after implementing the strategies to tackle the identified problems. This will help in assessing the effectiveness of the strategies and making any necessary adjustments.

Compare results pre and post implementation

Compare the results and outcomes before and after the implementation of the strategies. This analysis will provide insights into the impact of the strategies on addressing the identified problems.

Share the report with relevant stakeholders

Share the prepared report with the relevant stakeholders who are involved in the process improvement efforts. This may include management, team members, or other stakeholders who need to be aware of the analysis findings and recommendations.

Implement feedback and amendments as per approval on the final report

Implement any feedback or amendments as per the approval on the final report. This may involve updating strategies, action plans, or recommendations based on the input received from stakeholders.

Archive the analysis for future reference

Archive the Pareto analysis, including all the data, charts, and reports, for future reference. This will ensure that the analysis can be accessed and used for any future process improvement efforts.
