New 7 QC Tools  Seven Management and Planning Tools  PDF

What are the Seven New Management & Planning Tools?

→ The New 7 QC Tools or Seven Management and Planning Tools are defined as the systematic methods for achieving expected outcomes. It is also known as "7M Tools". 
→ These tools are very famous for their use in planning, problem-solving, and set organizational or personal goals.
→ They enhance the quality of the products and services of the organization.
→ Basically, these tools help us for making the better planning of New Product Launch, Product Development, and achieve organizational goals.
→ The Management and Planning Tools are very much used in Six Sigma Projects for converting the Voice of Customers into the Technical Requirements.

  1. Affinity_Diagram
  2. Interrelationship_Diagram
  3. Tree_Diagram
  4. Matrix_Diagram
  5. Matrix Data Analysis Chart
  6. Arrow_Diagram
  7. Process Decision Program Chart

[1] Affinity Diagram:


→ We can use an Affinity_Diagram for organizing a large number of ideas/data into their natural sets of relationships.
→ This tool is also known as a KJ Method because it was invented by a Japanese anthropologist Jiro Kawakita.
→ During the creation of an affinity_diagram, all team members need to brainstorm and collect the ideas as much as possible.
→ So that based on an idea, we need to arrange the data as per their natural relationship for solving the problem.

[2] Interrelationship Diagram:


→ An Interrelationship_Diagram helps us to show cause-and-effect relationships between the different ideas.
→ We can use this tool for analyzing complex things in a simple way.
→ This tool is also used to solve a very critical and confusing problem very easily.

[3] Tree Diagram:


→ The Tree_Diagram helps us to make our planning more accurately.
→ It breaks our objectives into sub-tasks and sub sub-tasks and so on.
→ We can achieve our objectives with the help of the Tree_Diagram.
→ During this activity, we are moving from general ideas to very specific goals.
→ The other names of the Tree_Diagram are (a) Systematic_Diagram, (b) Dendrograms, (c) Hierarchy diagram, (d) Organisation chart, and (e) Analytical Tree.

[4] Matrix Diagram:


→ Matrix_Diagram Shows the relationship between more than one group of data sets to each other.
→ In other words, we can say that this tool is used for many to many comparisons.
→ The Matrix_Diagram gives us clarity of the relationship between the different sets of data.
→ This tool is very helpful for developing the Quality Function Deployment (QFD).

[5] Matrix Data Analysis Chart:

Matrix Data Analysis Chart

→ This tool is used to analyze complex mathematical matrices.
→ We can easily perform market research and make a strategy for new products and services launching in the market.
→ Matrix Data Analysis Chart is also used as a Prioritization Matrix.

[6] Arrow Diagram:


→ Arrow_Diagram is used to making the best scheduling for the project.
→ We can optimize the tasks and processes of our project with the help of this tool.
→ It is also known as Activity Network_Diagram, Network_Diagram, and Activity Chart.
→ Arrow_Diagram is broadly used in the Program Evaluation and Review Technique [PERT], and Critical Path Method [CPM].

[7] Process Decision Program Chart:

Process Decision Program Chart

→ The Process Decision Program Chart is used to identify the possibility of what might go wrong during the project implementation.
→ In other words, we can say that this tool is used for forecasting the failures that may happen while the implementation of the project.
→ With the help of this tool, we can revise our project steps that might go wrong.
