Configure Pareto Charts

Pareto charts can help you quickly see which of your assets are most critical and know where you need to focus. You could configure Pareto charts for quality control, showing where most of the problems are coming from. For example, if you create a Pareto chart for Plant Yield, you could quickly see which plant is causing your overall numbers to fall.
