The performance of a computer system rely on compiler technology which states that compiler is used as a mechanism in evaluating architectural approaches before a computer is manufactured. In compiler the parser obtains a string of symbols from the lexical analyzer and ascertains that the string of token names can be accepted by the grammar for the source language. Operator precedence parsing is implementation of shift reduce grammar. In this paper we have studied problem found in the operator precedence relation and precedence relation table. It takes a lot of space in memory to parse a given string. We try to design an algorithm by which one can construct a directed graph and derive the precedence function table for context free grammar by which less memory space is enough for parsing an input string and to motivate the researcher, while showing the future aspects in the area of compiler designing and error solving.
