# How To Create a Prioritization Matrix

Making the prioritization matrix is helpful when all cannot be done at the same time. Prioritization matrix diagram shows the relationships between factors and this helps, to prioritize tasks and resources. This helps you to narrow down variants. By selecting and weighing options you can quickly determine the best choices and direct team to the best destinations. Prioritization matrix helps to identify the best way of implementing the most priority tasks. It is helpful in a case when you have limited resources. ConceptDraw solution for management and planning compiled from the Seven Management and Planning Tools provides the ability to quickly build Prioritization Matrix diagrams for your project using a special template.

## 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.

## Prioritization Matrix

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.

## How To Create a Prioritization Matrix

The prioritization matrix ranks factors. The process allows one to identify the factors that are the first priority. These factors can then be analyzed for possible corrective actions. The prioritization matrix allows for the weighting of each identified criterion.
"Prioritization Matrix.
This tool 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]
The prioritization matrix is one of the Seven Management and Planning Tools (7 MP tools, Seven New Quality Tools).

## How Do Fishbone Diagrams Solve Manufacturing Problems

How do Fishbone diagrams solve manufacturing problems? Fishbone diagrams are successfully used in various fields of industries and manufacturing to analyze the set of possible causes and their effects. Fishbone diagram provides a process to clearly define the “Effect” and then puts you to thinking about the possible causes, based on the categories of common problems in manufacturing.
ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application extended with Fishbone Diagrams solution lets you construct Fishbone diagrams and represent globally recognized standards for manufacturing 6 Ms and 8 Ms.
