What is a Pareto Chart?
Use a Pareto graph to quickly and visually identify the things (usually problems) that occur most frequently.
The "Pareto Principle" is that 80% of your resources are spent on 20% of your problems.
So your goal is to go resolve those problems first.
Click the button to create your chart, and then go focus your attention on the problems that have the tallest bars on the chart at the front of your pareto distribution.
