P‑M Analysis Step 5: Define Optimal Conditions
In the first four steps of P‑M analysis we clarify the phenomenon, conduct a physical analysis, and list all contributing factors for the phenomenon. Before we can judge whether these factors are normal or abnormal, we must define the optimal conditions for each factor. Learn the definition of optimal conditions, how to find existing standards, and what to do when we must establish missing ones.
