Quality Mind Map

In order to visualize, structure, classify and generate the ideas, mind maps can be used. They can be also an aid to organizing information, to solving different problems, to writing and to making decisions.

Any mind map is, first of all, a simple diagram. It can be used for organizing the information in a visual way being hierarchical and showing the relationships among different pieces of the whole. A mind map is known to be often created around some particular concept. Such concept is usually drawn as an image in the centre of a blank page making it obvious about the purpose of this particular mind map.

All the associated representations of ideas (e.g., words, images and parts of words) are usually all added to this key idea. Such ideas are known to be connected directly to the central concept, having the other ideas branching out from these.

Mind maps have many different applications in both educational and business situations. They are the great tools for summarizing a large amount of information. They can be also used as a mnemonic technique or in order to sort out some complicated idea. Mind maps can be also promoted as a way of collaboration in the so-called “color pen creativity sessions”.

Mind maps can be analyzed with the standard methods of information retrieval in order to classify either a mind map's author or documents that can be found linked from within the mind map. In order to create any needed mind map, the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and drawing software can be used.

As an extension to ConceptDraw PRO, the Quality Mind Map Solution can be also used, providing with the pre-made quality mind map templates, samples as well as stencil libraries full of design elements.

Quality Mind Maps: A Creative Look at Quality Procedures

Successful quality management implemented in a company of any size is a critical component of a company’s organization. Effective quality management requires strong formal procedures and a quality culture inside of the organization. Constant improvement of key performance indicators that are related to quality is a step in the right direction for a company interested in market growth.

Flowcharts (TQM flowcharts, VSM flowcharts, etc.) are recognized as a formal method of visualizing quality management and are a fundamental tool in quality management. There are other tools that are available to lend a fresh look to quality procedures. ConceptDraw MINDMAP has a new addition to the ConceptDraw Solution Park that provides a creative approach to visualizing quality processes, Quality Mind Map Solution.

Mind maps can be used to depict a quality process. With a mind map one can easily describe a quality process using a tree structure as well as show process relations, use visual symbols to improve understanding, and produce presentations. You can use mind maps for a complete quality process analysis, giving more visibility to the focal points that you need to get clear.

ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7 is a good way to describe visual instructions on any process. Printed on a single page, it is easy to identify the critical points during a conference call. As a note-taking tool, it lends itself to reorganizing the notes taken during a planning conversation to the corresponding spot in the structure of a template. Note organization is as easy as dragging-and-dropping content to its correct placement.

Mind maps are great for producing agendas used in quality meetings. You can print a copy for each participant, in order to keep everyone informed on core points and objectives. Viewing the mind map on a large screen during a meeting and making changes and putting notes helps to keep all participants on the same page. Final decisions, deals, and to-do lists can be added to this mind map so that the map content can be sent or printed for everyone, so that the whole team has a ready-to-work document.

Once a quality problem is identified, mind maps can be of great value in depicting and describing a problem in detail, then structure it, and find the right decision. The visual form of mind maps is helpful in all stages of quality management, from describing problem to describing and documenting a decision.

Using quality mind maps is a perfect addition to quality visualization in your company. Mind maps provide descriptive documents for daily work and keep all quality team members clearly informed about key points. The features of ConceptDraw MINDMAP v7 preserves total quality management and helps bring out the best in your products and services.
