Using this SIPOC Visio Diagram, you can create a more visually appealing SIPOC. Instead of using simple boxes to represent Suppliers and Customers, you can use people shapes that visually depict the work they do. This SIPOC Visio Diagram highlights a handful of different Visio shapes you can use. To find additional people shapes to represent the Suppliers and Customers, use the "Departments" Visio stencil found under the Flowchart category.
Other shapes can be found by searching in Visio using the search Shapes box or by navigating through the "More Shapes" menu.
SIPOC stands for Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs, Customers. The Visio SIPOC Diagram can be used in Lean and Six Sigma process improvement projects to:
- Define the stakeholders of a process (suppliers and customers)
- Define the scope and boundaries of the process
- Provide a high level overview of the process
- Understand how process outputs serve the end customer
This template was built using Visio 2010, but will likely work in versions as early as 2007.
