Wilfredo Pareto (1848-1923) studied sociology, engineering, economics and philosophy, among other disciplines. He discovered that 80% of the land in Italy was owned by 20% of the population. It was Joseph Juran, a business consultant, who named the 80/20 rule after Pareto – the Pareto principle. This same distribution has been accurately applied to multiple areas: 80% of your sales come from 20% of your customers, etc.
For the purpose of this exercise, please use 3 categories for the Pareto analysis
A = 80%; B=15%; C=5%
