Converting Columns in Dataset to Categories to use in Matrix

I need to present the data in following format using Matrix or any visual

However, the data is currently available in Columns. I do not have categories defined yet. I was thinking of using Unpivot Columns but that may not work as the data is combination of text,  numbers, and percentages. Looking for feedback for how I can take data below to format as above?

Hi @lotus22 ,

You can try this query and use a matrix to show the hierarchy in Power BI:

let
    Source = Table.FromRows(Json.Document(Binary.Decompress(Binary.FromText("i45WMlTSUTLQA5GOQOwExM5AbAzEpkBsBsSWIL6pqlJsLAA=", BinaryEncoding.Base64), Compression.Deflate)), let _t = ((type nullable text) meta [Serialized.Text = true]) in type table [#"Recordable Incidences" = _t, #"Lost Time Incidences" = _t, #"Safety Comments" = _t, #"Customer Concerns" = _t, #"Customer Concerns Details" = _t, #"Warranty Calls" = _t, #"Warranty Calls Details" = _t, #"Liaison Calls" = _t, #"Liaison Calls Details" = _t, #"Cost of Quality" = _t]),
    #"Changed Type" = Table.TransformColumnTypes(Source,{{"Recordable Incidences", Int64.Type}, {"Lost Time Incidences", type number}, {"Safety Comments", type text}, {"Customer Concerns", type text}, {"Customer Concerns Details", type text}, {"Warranty Calls", Int64.Type}, {"Warranty Calls Details", Int64.Type}, {"Liaison Calls", Int64.Type}, {"Liaison Calls Details", Int64.Type}, {"Cost of Quality", Percentage.Type}}),
    #"Unpivoted Columns" = Table.UnpivotOtherColumns(#"Changed Type", {}, "Attribute", "Value"),
    #"Added Index" = Table.AddIndexColumn(#"Unpivoted Columns", "Index", 1, 1, Int64.Type),
    #"Added Custom" = Table.AddColumn(#"Added Index", "Category", each if [Index] <= 3 then "Safety" else "Quality",type text),
    #"Removed Columns" = Table.RemoveColumns(#"Added Custom",{"Index"})
in
    #"Removed Columns"
