P-M Analysis Archive
P dash M Analysis is a systematic Problem-Solving Philosophy for Chronic Losses. The term P-M Analysis comes from the following origin: P – Phenomena(non), Physical; M – Mechanism, Relationship (Machine, Man/Woman, Material, Method) When To Use P-M Analysis? Root Cause Analysis Two Types of Problem Solving Techniques Why is 5-why Analysis effective?
How is a Minor Stop Defined? A machine stoppage is called a ‘minor stop’ when: the machine stops working for a short time; the machine can easily be restarted by removing or repositioning a workpiece; the machine can be restarted within a few seconds or minutes. The losses due

5. The 7 Steps of Effective Maintenance There are considerable differences in the way different companies tackle Effective Maintenance. A company that already has an excellent maintenance system will implement it differently from a company that has been working all-out to meet a high level of demand and has
14. P-M Analysis 14.1 The Weaknesses of Traditional Cause Analysis Cause analysis (fishbone analysis, or the cause-and-effect diagram) is a traditional quality control method that can be used easily and effectively to solve many types of problem. Its weaknesses become apparent, however, when attempts are made to use it
12. Reducing Speed Losses 12.1 Some Common Issues Associated with Speed Losses (1) Equipment specifications are unclear In some cases, owing to insufficient thoroughness at the design stage, the equipment specifications themselves are unclear and the equipment is operated too fast, resulting in quality defects and breakdowns. Sometimes the
