Use EdrawMax or EdrawMax Online to design the affinity diagram as this graphic designing tool has several in-built features that let you create, design, and share good-looking affinity diagrams among your peers. The below affinity diagram suggests the ongoing improvement of products, services, or processes through incremental and breakthrough improvements. Continuous process improvement is an actual type of work style designed to review results and rapidly adopt new measures continuously. However, certain factors cause process improvement, like lack of TQM knowledge, lack of planning, organizational issues, breaking through old ways, and old management culture. These issues can be explained further by elaborating factors like needing a new data collection system, developing a product without developing a process, lack of follow-up by management, and others.
