Select Codes & Categories – Choose from the radio buttons to personalize your pareto analysis. Choosing an option will display additional selection tools based on your choice.

Order By – Select an option to order downtime categories by.

Group By – Choose how to group downtimes in pareto analysis.

Once you’ve completed your selections, hit the View button. A pareto analysis will generate based on your choices, displaying in both a bar graph and a pie chart.

Clicking in further to any graph will display each instance of the selected downtime, as well as:

  • Start time and end time
  • Each downtime duration
  • Assigned time
