Hi, welcome to all of you once again on your blog site. Today we will know about What is check sheet, its types and importance  in this  session we will cover brief description about the What is check sheet, its types and importance. So requesting to you if you want to learn about this so please read this article carefully from beginning to end and I am confident that your attention during reading surely enhance your skill about What is check sheet, its types and importance and as we know we all carried out these things in routine basis. It means your knowledge will enhance and your competency will enhance in respect of What is check sheet, its types and importance.

 In this blog we will cover the below content:
 
  • Check sheet introduction.
  • Types of check sheet
  • Steps to create check sheet:
  • Importance of check sheet
 
 
Check sheet introduction.
Check sheet is a type of form with the help of which we can collect data easily as per our requirement without any complexity. Check sheet is also one of the 7 QC tool which can used for improvement in any organization.
As we know data collection is first step later on this collected data can be used for stratification, analysis etc. purpose based on data application. Based on data requirement either it is qualitative or quantitate we can use check sheet easily.
 
Types of check sheet :
As we know check sheet play very important role for collection of data as per application. It is one of the 7 QC tool .If we talk about types of check sheet , basically check sheet is created based on application .The application can be of following types
Monitoring of process performance
Identification of defects items during process
Location wise defect identification
To ensure the compliance of any activity/task
To identify the causes applicable for defect created
 
 
Steps to create effective check sheet:
As we discussed check sheet is used to collect the data as per required purpose, it means we can create check sheet in line of our purpose. To create check sheet we have to follow few sequence of steps so that the designed check sheet can fulfil our purpose.
Process to create check sheet is rotate around the approach which is PDCA.
Identification of data/ information which is required
  • Identification of method of data collection
  • Draft creation according to purpose
  • Dry run of check sheet wrt intended purpose
  • Review, approval and implementation of final check sheet
  • These all steps are proceed in a sequence of PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act)
Lets discus these steps one by one in brief.
 
Plan-
Step 1-
Identification of data/ information which is required
In this step we have to identify the information which is required for our purpose or we can say what kind of data we required.
 
Step 2-
Identification of method of data collection
This is very important step to create any check sheet, in this step we have to make clear picture about our data collection. Generally to accomplish this step effectively the 5 W 2 H approach to be used so that it make easy to understand the process of creating check sheet.
  • Why data required
  • What type of data required
  • From where data to be collected
  • Who will be responsible for collecting data?
  • When the data will be collected
  • How data will be collected
  • How much data required to collect meet the check sheet purpose
 
Do-
Step 3-
Draft creation according to purpose
In this step we have to create a draft format for check sheet which must contain minimum information related to title, project name, date & time, person responsible for data recording in check sheet etc.
 
 
Check-
Step 4-
Dry run of check sheet wrt intended purpose
Now it’s time to make a trail run of draft check sheet in applicable process. Collect the data in specified area on draft check sheet and not down the gaps or improvement which can be done in check sheet based on practical uses.
 
 
Act-
Step 5-
Review, approval and implementation of final check sheet
It is the last step to create check sheet. In this step we have to update our draft check sheet against gaps or improvement point’s identified during the trail run.
After finalization take approval from authority and then communicate the check sheet content to all concerned and finally implement it into applicable process.
 
 
Importance of check sheet
 
  • It help to collect data easily
  • Data can collect as per our requirement
  • Collected data can use for multiple purpose
  • Easy to track current status of process
  • Indicator of process related to current scenario

We can say that check sheet is one the important QC tool out of 7 QC tools.

By following the above mentioned requirements we can create check sheet for any process which is applicable to our organization like forgings, 5S , Maintenance of any equipment like furnace, rotory pump etc.
One thing which we need to focus is understand that why we need this check sheet.
