. . . if I wanted to use article in the above list, is it wrong? which one is better?

Hello, Tony—It is not wrong to use the article from a grammatical standpoint. Indeed, it is quite natural and correct from a grammatical standpoint to use the article there. However, as Gustavo observes, articles are often omitted in such lists; so this is really a stylistic matter.

You should examine already published reports of the type you are writing and see whether articles are used at the beginning of such lines. Alternatively, you could ask the people for whom you are writing (the company, not its clients) what stylistic preference they have in this circumstance. Then be consistent.
