FAQs

A SIPOC template is comprised of five columns that show the inputs and outputs of a process or system. Each column stands for one letter in the SIPOC acronym: Suppliers, Inputs, Process, Outputs, and Customers.

The SIPOC tool helps teams understand the components of a successful process at a glance. A SIPOC diagram example may cover your business’s top channels for supplies, important raw materials, multiple versions of the final product, and more.

Putting together your own SIPOC diagram template? Follow our easy-to-use SIPOC model example for a clear, shareable table and then collaborate across teams to fill in each column with relevant information.

Because your processes are unique, your SIPOC diagrams will be, too. That’s why you can personalize our SIPOC example to suit your team’s needs. For example, if you reach various customer types through different channels, divide this section into sub-categories.

Fill out the template from left to right starting with the first letter in the SIPOC acronym:

Suppliers: List out your top channels. Consider specifying key individual suppliers.

Inputs: Record all the inputs required by the process, including expertise, new talent, raw materials, and more.

Process: Write down every process stepchronologically. Maintain a high-level approach if you’re showing the diagram to stakeholders and sponsors.

Outputs: Specify the versions of the final product or service your team will create to meet customer needs.

Customers: Identify and rank various channels for reaching customers.
