What is a 4M Analysis Procedure?

The 4M is a troubleshooting and risk-management method used in manufacturing. It allows businesses to identify and group issues that impact operations and affect Materials, Methods, Machines, or Man (workforce).

4M Analysis aims to avoid situations that may endanger any element of the production, and that may cause unexpected operational downtime.
