Thus, a Pareto diagram would be most appropriate.

If we also include ran-in error and velox, almost two-third of the errors are included. We would suggest that reduction of these errors be focused upon if our goal is improvement in the number of errors committed. SH 2.3 The information in Table SH2.1 represents only the frequency of the different types of errors, and does not indicate the importance of each error. Thus, it would be useful to obtain information about the cost of each type of error.
