P‑M Analysis Step 4: Study the Relevance of 4M Factors

In the third step of P‑M analy­sis, we exam­ine how the con­stituent con­di­tions iden­ti­fied in the pre­vi­ous step are relat­ed to the basic process inputs. In step four, we find inputs from the four 4M cat­e­gories of machine, meth­ods, man­pow­er, or mate­ri­als. Learn the five key activ­i­ties dur­ing this step, how this inves­ti­ga­tion dif­fers from 5‑why analy­sis, and how to fill out the P‑M analy­sis cause and effect table.
