Pareto Chart - GoLeanSixSigma.com

A Pareto Chart is a Bar Chart of discrete data that displays the most significant categories of defects in descending order.

Pareto Charts display both frequency of occurrences (bar graph) and cumulative total of occurrences (line graph) on a single chart. The left Y-Axis shows frequency of occurrences, while the right Y-Axis shows the total percentage.

For a better understanding of The Pareto Chart and an overview of Lean Six Sigma, check out our Free Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training, Green Belt Training or Lean Training.
