Step by Step Details

A flowchart documents added value steps, non added value steps, decision steps, documentation steps, information flow and many other critical stages necessary to conduct your process.

Overview of Detailed Procedures

A top down flow chart outlines the critical steps involved in complicated procedures. The reader can then easily recognize the significant steps. The flowchart directs the reader where to find more details.

Study the Current Process

Team members study their flowcharts and make decisions about the simplicity or complexity of your process. The flowcharts show the number of steps involved in the process. Because the flowchart visually represents the process, team members can question the validity of each step.

When studying the process ask these questions

  • Does the flow chart show every step?
  • What step(s) is missing?
  • Does each step belong?
  • Is each step necessary?
  • Can some steps be combine?
  • Are there too many decisions points?
  • Can the flow be rearrange and simplified?
  • Can the flow be change to improve cycle time?
  • Is there missing involvement of key people?
  • Are there too many people involved?
  • Is appropriate data being collected at each step?
  • Is traceability documented at each step?

Common Reference Points

A sound flowchart will be agreed upon by all team members. Flowchart samples allow team member to point to a given step and fully discuss that step. This keeps meetings focused on the issues.

Show Flow of New Improved Systems

One can use a flowchart to predict the best flow / map after improvements. Use a planning flowchart as a roadmap. Rearrange your actual process to meet the improved planning flowchart. Use a flow chart during planning stages when you introduce a new product, service, machinery or proposed process changes. By using flowcharts during the planning stages you can prevent defects, lost of work, lost of time and in general most types of troubles.

Reduce Non Value Added Steps

Flowchart samples can show unnecessary steps. Unnecessary steps that do not add any value to the final outcome need to be eliminated. Non value added steps include unwarranted inspection, rework, needless knowledge sharing, and unnecessary signatures.
