analyze the following scenario: 

The following chart displays the results of the first year's production of the new pill, Boomer 1. The table was created from data supplied by the production department managers of the Biotech branches making the pill. The data was collected for the purpose of controlling production output. The data will be used by the Vice President (VP) of Production, Arthur Miller to identify areas of improvement, change, or to provide kudos for the success of the processes used by the Production Department in the production of Boomer 1. 

The chart describes the standard goal (identified as standard) set by the department and the results of each branch. A comparison of the standard to the results allows the reader to form conclusions about the success or failure of the Production Department to meet the goals envisioned by the company. It also allows the reader to recognize patterns from the data so conclusions can be drawn as to the relationship between elements (e.g. cost expended vs time expended; those who spent more time had a higher cost).
