General Linear Model (GLM)

Definition of General Linear Model (GLM):

A tool used to analyse the participation of each x’s in creating defects for Project Y. This can be used to compliment the result of a Pareto Chart where the 80:20 ratio is analysed and worked upon.

Also in cases where none of the Potential x’s could prove it’s significance as a part of the Analyze phase, this tool can be used to enquire/attain information as to the contribution of each potential x’s in creating a defect for your Project Y.
