How to Create a SIPOC Diagram

  1. Label five easel sheets: suppliers, inputs, process, outputs and customers
  2. Using Post-it® notes, begin listing suppliers, inputs, process, outputs and customers.
  3. Once you have all of the notes on sheets organize them to show a logical connection and flow.
