Process Map for Supplier

Because there is no / limited supplier quality department with lack of understanding for roles and responsibilities. I am planning to create process flow interaction with various functions within organization

Why do you want to create a process flow diagram for a department?

Your search for a template will most likely come up empty because what you're apparently trying to do isn't done very much. Process flow diagrams are, as the name suggests, for processes, not individual department functions. What you can do is determine the inputs, the processing expected, and the resulting outputs. Some people use turtle diagrams for this sort of thing.

Far be it from me to insert words into Jim's mouth, but I think what he might be suggesting, @syedala , is that you're asking the wrong question...or considering a path that is more complicated than it needs to be.

If all you want is something that outlines roles and responsibilities, as well as how the functions (positions?) interact, you can more than likely accomplish this with the use of traditional tools such as job descriptions and an organizational chart.

If, however, you are looking for something more process-centric (e.g., conducting a supplier audit, purchasing/procurement process, evaluating critical suppliers, etc.), then perhaps a flow chart will work for you. At my org., we often use something like the attached, as it shows WHO is responsible for conducting WHAT and WHEN (at least within the process).
