Use Pareto Charts to Show Results
Use before and after Paretos to demonstrate process improvements
I really like the QI Macros. The Pareto chart is worth the purchase price of the whole deal.

Step by step instructions on how to create multiple Pareto charts at once
- To create two or more Pareto charts using QI Macros, select one column of labels and two or more columns of data:
- Click on the QI Macros Menu then "Pareto Chart" to draw both charts:

Use Before and After Pareto Charts to Demonstrate Improvements
In this example, defect type G represented the biggest bar on the before improvement Pareto chart. It accounted for 91 defects and was 33.7% of all defects.
To confirm that improvements were made, we should look for defect type G on the after improvement Pareto chart.
In the after improvement Pareto, there were only 9 defect type Gs and they only accounted for 6.1% of total defects.
This data confirms the countermeasures for defect type G were successful. Now the team can turn it's attention to the next big bar, defect type E which now accounts for 30.2% of defects.
