How to Sustain the Results of P‑M analysis
In the ninth step of P‑M analysis, we ensure that measures are in place to sustain the results of our actions to restore and improve our equipment. This is because good results from our analysis and improvement efforts are only meaningful when we lock them in. Doing so also sets a firm foundation for future improvement. Learn the four actions for sustaining the results of P‑M analysis and keeping processes in control.

Visual display boards are effective tools for teams to organize, communicate, monitor performance, and follow-up on improvement activities. The P‑M analysis storyboard helps us show the work we do to find the causes of a problem phenomenon, eliminate the causes, and sustain the results. Learn the typical design of this storyboard, how its sections relate to the eight steps of P‑M analysis and the seven guidelines for using this tool effectively.
