Visualize and improve your process with a SIPOC diagram

Whether you’re designing a delivery service or a system for customer support, you’ll need to keep track of the parts of your process and how they work together.

One excellent way to do this is with a SIPOC diagram. SIPOC stands for suppliers, inputs, process, outputs, and customers, and a SIPOC diagram allows you to lay out all the pieces involved in a process. Once completed, a SIPOC diagram can capture a high-level view of the process, allowing you to more easily build new processes from the ground up or improve existing ones.

Lucidchart offers a SIPOC template that you can easily share with remote and hybrid teams, allowing you to keep everyone aligned on your current process and any changes you are making.
