Process map Evaluation and Analysis Method

Is there any good reason to include the evaluation and analysis column on a process flow chart such as in the example when the same information is on the control plan where it should be?

I see no harm in it, and I agree if could add clarity for users. Some process maps are lengthy because of a process having many steps, and it's possible that a step such as inspection would be repeated but done with a different work instruction.

My thought was since the control plans cover all of this having it on the flow chart was just unnecessary redundancy. Appreciate the feedback.

One can 'hope' that the process flow chart is being done for a reason other than "to have it"...and if so, someone might look at it later (someday, a long long time from now maybe).
When it gets looked at, it sure is nice to have fuller picture rather than having to pull out multiple things (CP) and have to cross reference to get the picture.
Agree with optomist...convenience...on the off chance someone someday ever looks at it again.

Obviously a bit tongue in cheek...I have never, EVER, pulled a control plan or process flow chart after initial PPAP was accepted...but all the one off charts and plans and flows made a nice, impressive 3-ring binder on the shelf.
Hmmm, I just moved the billet to storage, what do I do now? (look up process in massive pile of paperwork)...Oh, I should store it, whoulda thunk?
