Why, oh why, did we get hung up on a Process Flow Diagram that looks like this: https://www.google.com/search?q=pro...ocess+flow+diagram+PPAP&imgrc=6HHENs59bmqNUM: This is not a diagram. This is a list. Just because there are some graphical symbols on it, does not make it a "diagram." And - they are honestly redundant. Why do I have a symbol for manufacturing step AND a column for manufacturing step? If I check the manufacturing step COLUMN why don't I just check it with a check? Or have ONE column only and use the symbol? Better yet - how about an actual diagram? Like an aerial view of the process that gives me some sense of movement through the plant, where the WIP areas are, etc. etc. You know, a diagram? Label it with the OP numbers and tell me which things are making the key characteristics and that's it. BOOM. Done. And better. Rant over.
