Which of the following statements BEST illustrate the technique Peter must have used in this scenario?
A. A Pareto chart indicates that the vital few sources of the problem. B. A cause and effect diagram indicates how various causes show the history and variation of defects C. A Pareto chart identifies the possible relationship between changes observed in two independent variables D. A cause and effect diagram indicates how various factors or causes can be linked to potential problems
A. A Pareto chart indicates that the vital few sources of the problem.
