The check sheet is another simple and effective tool useful in Lean Six Sigma projects. It is sometimes referred to as a concentration diagram or location plot. It is a handy tool for both qualitative and quantitative data gathering and analysis. Check sheets help to systematically collect and organize data and is useful in the all phases of the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve and control) framework.
