Definition of Scatter Plot

To view all organizational processes in a single glance, a graphical tool came in use which is known as scatter plot. The scatter plot analyzes the correlation between important organizational or process variables. There are two types of plots drawn - bivariate and multivariate. A bivariate scatter plot is drawn when only 2 variables are studies together to find out their impact. When more than 2 variables are studied together to find out their impact, it is known as a multivariate scatter plot.


Suppose two variables are studied and there exists a high degree of correlation, it gives a fair idea to management to run the business better and improve the processes. Scatter plot is quite useful in the production process to improve productivity and eliminate cost.
