My ref is 'The Handbook of Technical Writing', 3rd edition.

"A modifying phrase is not hyphenated when it follows the noun it modifies."


In the statement:

"....make the process of delivering a system easier, less error prone, and
more efficient."

Is it "error prone" or "error-prone"?

I love it here;
..there's no where I'd rather be,
.....there's nothing I'd rather be doing,
........and no one I'd rather be doing it with.
