This SIPOC diagram presents a high-level overview of the parts receiving inventory process. A team will utilize a SIPOC diagram to list all pertinent components of a process improvement project before work starts. Just as the diagram's name suggests, the team usually thinks about the suppliers of the process ("S"), the inputs to the process ("I"), the process itself (the "P" your team is enhancing), the process's outputs (the "O"), and the consumers (the "C" that get the process outputs). In some circumstances, the SIPOC may be supplemented with client needs as an appendix for more information. Learn more about SIPOC analysis and create your own SIPOC diagram on EdrawMax!
