Can anyone help with what they beleive to be the best format for a process flow diagram?

We are a tier 1 supplier to Automotive OEM's, the format we use currently is OK, but being relatively in experienced in this area I am looking for some good ideas. I would be greatful for any you may have. :frust:

QS9000 fails to specify any kind of format. I wouls like clear concise and with all relevant details.

If you do a search, using the search function that can be found on each page in the cove, you will find many examples of process flow diagrams.

Welcome to the Cove Manix :bigwave:

We don't have any "flashy" diagrams - just use a pretty standard format.
