Task checklist: A task checklist is used when you do not have much of a judgment, but need to remember a number of things. You should use these lists to write the details of the things to be remembered. These are highly detailed and may contain categories of things. There may be individual groups of objects or lists of different objects under a certain group. For example, you might list up the ingredients required to prepare a certain recipe or the things to carry when you are leaving for work.
Troubleshooting checklist: When you need judgement-oriented checklists, you can use troubleshooting checklists. These lists are less technical in nature. Suppose, the engine of your car is not starting. There is a list of probable causes in the list, and you need to check out these factors to ensure that the car will get started. A troubleshooting checklist is commonly used when there is a problem regarding your work, and you want to fix the trouble by going through the list. It has to be based on your judgment.
A checklist is one of those few methods which allow you to work in an organized and methodical fashion. It is basically a list of things that you have to do or a list of things that you have to buy, and you can carry out the necessary task while following the checklist.
