7 Basic Quality Tools Lessons Best to Learn These in the Order Presented

Tool #1 - The Check Sheet

A Check Sheet is used for the purpose of collecting data to compile in such a way as to be easily used, understood and analyzed automatically.

Tool #2 - Pareto Diagram

The Pareto diagram is a graphical overview of the process problems, in ranking order of the most frequent, down to the least frequent, in descending order from left to right. Thus, the Pareto diagram illustrates the frequency of fault types.

Tool #3 - Histogram Diagram

The purpose of a Histogram is to take the data that is collected from a process and then display it graphically to view how the distribution of the data, centers itself around the mean, or main specification.

Tool #4 - Cause-and-Effect Diagram

After collecting data from a process, and then preparing a pareto or histogram diagram, it's time to consider the reasons for the variation and those defects created.

Tool #5 - Scatter Diagram

The Scatter Diagram is another Quality Tool that can be used to show the relationship between "paired data", and can provide more useful information about a production process.

Tool #6 - Xbar and R Chart

Control charts are generally used in a production or manufacturing environment and are used to control, monitor and IMPROVE a process.

Tool #7 - Np Attribute Chart

The use of attribute control charts arises when items are compared with some standard and then are classified as to whether they meet that standard or not.
