P‑M Analysis Step 7 Identify Deviations from Optimal Conditions
In P dash M analysis, we consider any deviation from optimal conditions, no matter how minor, to be an abnormality. Finding and addressing all minor flaws and abnormalities is essential to reducing chronic losses. Learn how the seventh step of P dash M analysis focuses on taking thorough measurements of factors contributing to our phenomenon to identify deviations from optimal conditions.

In the eighth step of P‑M analysis, we make a plan to address all abnormalities identified in the previous steps. Then we evaluate the results of our actions, and make adjustments as needed until we achieve zero failures. Learn the four main activities during this step and what to do when our efforts aren’t sufficient to achieve zero failures.
