Develop a process map
Six Sigma organizations know you must “walk the process” to actually observe and see how the process works. You can’t just stay in your office and review work instructions about how a process is “supposed” to work. So, one of the first things a Six Sigma team does is to develop a process map resulting from their observation of the key processes.
The Six Sigma Process Map will provide a visual view of key processes, inputs, outputs, etc. The team can evaluate bottlenecks, backlogs, and known problem areas to determine where process improvement projects should focus their attention.
Businesses and organizations use Six Sigma Process Maps for key-value streams to determine where to focus their resources. Six Sigma teams use process maps to document all processes including hidden processes that might be used to repair defects, etc., and teams strive to streamline value streams to provide reliable products and/or services to the customer when needed.
