Presentation Title: “Process Mapping – A Tool for Every Business”

Abstract: The process map is a tool that graphically shows the inputs, actions, and outputs of a process with a clear, step-by-step map of the process. This tool is very useful in the DMAIC process. The purpose of process mapping is to allow others to understand all the aspects of a defined process.

We will address the major components of process mapping including:

  • Inputs, output and steps of the process (SIPOC)
  • Interaction of the flow of work and interactions within the organization
  • Proper level of detail with respect to the process and its components
  • Differences between process mapping and value stream mapping

Never again have your audit findings challenged because of weak evidence.
