P‑M Analysis Step 2: How to Draw a Process Diagram
The first step in physical analysis is to visualize the mechanism or process component where the phenomenon happens. We do this by drawing a process diagram in our physical analysis worksheet. Learn the four keys for preparation and the three guidelines for creating an effective process diagram.

In the third step of P‑M analysis we identify all constituent conditions, or conditions that are either necessary or sufficient to bring about the phenomenon. Learn the five activities for identifying constituent conditions, the questions we ask at each stage, and how we use the 4M factors to study the equipment functions thoroughly.
