What Is a SIPOC Diagram?

A SIPOC diagram is a process map that provides a high-level overview of a project. It stands for Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs and Customers.

How to Create a SIPOC Diagram?

  • Create a team of employees involved in or affected by the process. You can use Creately SIPOC diagram templates to record information as you analyze the process.
  • Once you have identified the process you want to analyze, list down the key steps in it. You can write down these steps in the middle column of the SIPOC diagram.
  • Or you can map out the steps using a simple flowchart. Make sure not to go into too much detail as your process map should only give a bird’s eye overview of the process.
  • List down the key outputs of the process in the respective column. Use nouns and avoid grouping them as good or bad.
  • List down the people who will benefit from the process. This could be your customers and if it’s an internal process, it could be your employees.
  • What are the inputs necessary to carry out the process you are analyzing? List these down in the inputs column.
  • Identify who the suppliers are based on the inputs you listed down before; and mark the suppliers who also have a direct impact on the process outputs.
  • Export your diagram in PNG, SVG or PDF image formats to publish, print or share it. You can directly share your SIPOC diagram with the project team or stakeholders through Slack; or install the Creately Confluence plugin to create and add diagrams to your Confluence pages and posts.
