Seven Basic Tools of Quality - Pareto Chart
Pareto Chart is one of the seven basic tools of quality control, it is a type of diagram that combines the elements of bar chart and line graph. The individual values are represented in descending order by bars, and the cumulative total is represented by the line. The left vertical axis is the frequency of occurrence, cost or another important unit of measure. The right vertical axis is the cumulative percentage of the total number of occurrences, total cost, or total of other unit of measure.
The purpose of Pareto analysis and the Pareto chart is to detach the most important among a set of factors. In quality control, it often represents the most common sources of defects, the top set of causes which needed to be resolved. Then to identify the root causes of the problems, can be applied such tools as fishbone analysis and Fishbone diagram.
Pareto analysis is also effectively used in risk management for detecting the risks that have the most impact on the project.
Pareto Chart design is now easier than ever thanks to the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software and powerful drawing tools, 9 libraries with numerous vector objects, collection of professionally designed and well thought-out samples offered by Seven Basic Tools of Quality solution from the Quality area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

THREE RELATED HOW TO's:
When trying to figure out the nature of the problems occurring within a project, there are many ways to develop such understanding. One of the most common ways to document processes for further improvement is to draw a process flowchart, which depicts the activities of the process arranged in sequential order — this is business process management. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is business process mapping software with impressive range of productivity features for business process management and classic project management. This business process management software is helpful for many purposes from different payment processes, or manufacturing processes to chemical processes. Business process mapping flowcharts helps clarify the actual workflow of different people engaged in the same process. This samples were made with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software for flowcharting and used as classic visio alternative because its briefly named "visio for mac" and for windows, this sort of software named the business process management tools.
This flowchart diagram shows a process flow of project management. The diagram that is presented here depicts the project life cycle that is basic for the most of project management methods. Breaking a project into phases allows to track it in the proper manner. Through separation on phases, the total workflow of a project is divided into some foreseeable components, thus making it easier to follow the project status. A project life cycle commonly includes: initiation, definition, design, development and implementation phases. Distinguished method to show parallel and interdependent processes, as well as project life cycle relationships. A flowchart diagram is often used as visual guide to project. For instance, it used by marketing project management software for visualizing stages of marketing activities or as project management workflow tools. Created with ConceptDraw DIAGRAM — business process mapping software which is flowcharting visio alternative or shortly its visio for mac, this sort of software platform often named the business process management tools.

A histogram is a chart which visually displays a distribution of numerical data.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software offers a powerful Seven Basic Tools of Quality solution from the Quality area of ConceptDraw Solution Park which contains a set of useful tools for easy drawing Histogram and other quality related diagrams of any complexity.
