To identify repitative deviation, a trending of deviation should be recommended,

To identify repetition of deviations.
To identify weak area of system.
To identify weak area of facility.
To identify poor investigation.
To identify poor maintenance / equipment defect
Effectiveness of CAPA.
ToList item identify training needs.
In business point of view; it is best to identify the weak area of system

To perform good trending deviation should categorizes as
Process –Yield.
Environment –Non conformity.
System error
People Mistake / Error
Process –material.
Documentation –lost.
Environment Monitoring-missing.
Equipment –Malfunction error.
Documentation –reference support.

So deviation tending is useful to controls repitative deviation
