Deviation Analysis

Deviation Analysis provides a common language and standard approach that easily integrates with and drives additional value from other operational improvement initiatives such as Lean Manufacturing, Six Sigma, statistical process control and others.


When your employees understand the elements of Deviation Analysis and have the common language our workshop provides, the quality of their work increases. They learn to deal with causes, not symptoms, resulting in less down-time and higher quality. In addition, client interaction becomes both more efficient and more effective, as does change implementation.

  • Find the cause of deviations more quickly
  • Rule out costly, time-consuming "fixes" that won't work and
  • Select more effective long-term fixes so that your machine or process "stays fixed."
