Pareto Analysis Excel Template
This pareto chart template will assist you in identifying the cumulative effect of defects and prioritizing improvements – an essential tool in the continuous improvement toolkit.
The pareto chart consists of a bar and line. Each bar represents a type of defect / problem.
The bar’s height represents an important unit of measure, typically frequency of occurrence or cost.
These bars are ordered from tallest to shortest, designed so to show you which defects are having the greatest impact.
The line represents the cumulative percentage of defects.
The idea is that the few most impactful defects constitute most of the total problem.
