What is the SOP flowchart example template?

A standard operating procedure, or SOP, flowchart shows the steps to complete a process or task. This particular flowchart template is an example, meaning it’s already filled out. You can study it to get a better idea of what information goes into an SOP flowchart, and if you want, you can personalize it to make it your own.

Benefits of using the SOP flowchart example template

When you use an SOP flowchart, you get to document a process step by step and in great detail, especially if you use layers. This helps you whether you’re trying to create an operating procedure from scratch, understand a current one, or improve an existing one. Additionally, the information you’re working with will be presented visually, which helps you work effectively since it’ll be easier to understand.

The SOP flowchart example template, like all Lucidchart templates, is easy to customize and share. Once you’re done studying the filled-in example, you can quickly put your information in to create your own SOP flowchart and share it with whoever needs to see it.

How to use the SOP flowchart example template in Lucidchart

Use layers to include lots of detail in your flowchart without making it cluttered. In the top toolbar, go to View, then select Layers. This allows you to add, show, hide, lock, and edit layers in the document. You can also edit a layer by holding Ctrl + Shift while clicking on an object in a layer.

While in a layer, drag and drop shapes on the canvas as needed. Select the shape to move shapes between layers, then right-rick on it and select “Move to Layer.”

With Lucidchart, you can create detailed SOP flowcharts that still make sense visually. If you’re ready to learn more about creating multi-layered diagrams, SOP flowcharts, or Lucidchart in general, see the tutorial links on the right side of the document.
