Project Tracking Tools

Six sigma is a project-based system. If the projects fail, Six Sigma doesn’t work. Since one of the most frequent reasons projects fail is due to the inability to recognize when a project is falling behind, these tools help make Six Sigma projects a success.

Note that manual tracking tools do have advantages over computer-based programs including:

  • cost (except for very large or complex projects.)
  • ease of use
  • helpful to monitor
  • gives you a ‘hands on feel’
