The QI Macros for Excel SPC Software includes a SIPOC template to help you describe:
- Suppliers (external and internal)
- Inputs to each step (materials, etc.)
- Process (Start, 3-7 key steps, and End)
- Outputs of each step
- Customers (internal and external)
How to Create a SIPOC Diagram
- Label five easel sheets: suppliers, inputs, process, outputs and customers
- Using Post-it® notes, begin listing suppliers, inputs, process, outputs and customers.
- Once you have all of the notes on sheets organize them to show a logical connection and flow.
