SIPOC is a lateral process modeling methodology fostering insights about the interactions and interdependencies of process objects.
SIPOC notation: Supplier > Input > PROCESS > Output > Customer
Transformation of inputs to outputs with determination of the source of inputs and destination of outputs.
The SIPOC methodology extended with trigger and completion events is also propagated by the ISO 9001 QMS standard.
In contrast to a vertical detail-oriented logic (how is it done ?), SIPOC as a contextual process modeling methodology (what must happen to achieve a goal ?) promotes holistic and creative thinking.
The SIPOC methodology is implicitly end-to-end from supplier to customer and across a suite of processes in support of a business model and can be used across the strategy, management and working process layers.
