You can design the Prioritization Matrix by hand on the paper, but we offer you the most easier way — to use the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software extended with Seven Management and Planning Tools Solution from the Management Area.

## PROBLEM ANALYSIS. Prioritization Matrix

ConceptDraw OFFICE suite is a software for Prioritization Matrix diagram making. This diagram ranks the drivers’ factors to determine priority. It identifies the factors of the first priority for analysis of possible corrective actions. It assesses the weight of each factor for each criterion and specifies it in the Prioritization Matrix. The total sum of weights for a factor’s criteria indicates its priority.

This vector stencils library contains 10 templates for drawing the prioritization matrices using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
The prioritization matrix is one of the Seven Management and Planning Tools (7 MP tools, Seven New Quality Tools).
"Prioritization Matrix ... is used to prioritize items and describe them in terms of weighted criteria. It uses a combination of tree and matrix diagramming techniques to do a pair-wise evaluation of items and to narrow down options to the most desired or most effective. Popular applications for the Prioritization Matrix include Return-on-Investment (ROI) or Cost-Benefit analysis (Investment vs. Return), Time management Matrix (Urgency vs. Importance), etc." [Seven Management and Planning Tools. Wikipedia]
Use prioritization matrix to rank items based on a set of criteria.
The example "Design elements - Prioritization matrix" is included in the solution "Seven Management and Planning Tools" from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.

## How To Create a Prioritization Matrix

"A prioritization matrix is a simple tool that provides a way to sort a diverse set of items into an order of importance. It also identifies their relative importance by deriving a numerical value for the priority of each item.
The matrix provides a means for ranking projects (or project requests) based on criteria that are determined to be important. This enables a department to see clearly which projects are the most important to focus on first, and which,
if any, could be put on hold or discontinued." [oqi.wisc.edu/ resourcelibrary/ uploads/ resources/ Project_ Prioritization_ Guide_ v_ 1.pdf]
