Please no screen shots, I want to be able to edit the flow charts if needed. Thanks

Complete the following six requirements for the process selected:

  1. Provide background information on the organization, why the process was selected for study, and the approach/PI (Process Improvement) tools used to complete this assignment.

  2. Describe, Document and Flowchart the existing process. You may use a software tool for flowcharting (see Resources at the end).

  3. Identify specific performance measures that you would use to determine the baseline performance for the current process in order to assess any improvements.   

  4. Research the Web and other sources for benchmark information (best practices) on the selected process and/or similar processes. Summarize your research findings. Identify the sources and best practices found that could be transferred to your redesigned process in Item #5.

  5. Identify and discuss opportunities for improving the present process and flowchart your new process. Identify the sources and best practices found in Item #4 that could be transferred to the redesigned process. Explain why your proposed changes were suggested and discuss, in depth, the potential impact of your proposed changes on the baseline measures identified in Item #3. Describe any tools used in the improvement process.

  6. Identify control measures that you would use at key points within the new process to assure the process is operating properly. Describe where you would apply them and why selected.
