Why Pareto Analysis is Not Sufficient
Join Adam and Fred as they discuss how Pareto analysis can be a good guide for failure mode analysis but is only a start for the process.
- A Pareto analysis can be very misleading because failure category is typically based on a first glance analysis. A closer root cause analysis can significantly change the distribution of failure type.
- “No fault found” and “Quality defect” are two common “bucket” categories that can be very misleading.
- Communication is key. Make sure the audience who is receiving this input understands how the information was derived from the data.
