Pareto Diagrams

Pareto diagramOur SPC software, SPC for Excel,  easily creates Pareto diagrams - a great visual way to separate the vital few from the trivial many.  There are three Pareto options:

  • Frequency - totals the frequency of occurrence by category (e.g., number of returns by product)
  • Defect - totals reasons for defects (e.g., reasons for customer returns)
  • Variables - totals frequency for categories for different levels of a variable (e.g, defects by shift)

For more information on Pareto diagrams, please see our June 2004 newsletter on Pareto diagrams. If you need to teach Pareto diagrams, we offer a complete teaching guide for Pareto diagrams.
