Process Mapping

What Is It?

Mapping a process creates a visual representation of each step required to complete a task. Widely used in LEAN and Six Sigma work, they create a shared view of a process and highlight process stages that are overly complex or even unnecessary.

How can it help?

  • Process maps are most effective when a time for the stage is plotted against it, as this allows you to focus process re-design where it will have the biggest impact
  • Online process mapping enables “What if” process re-engineering to identify the most promising options before any real-life tests
  • Process maps can also be used to support consistent process compliance across multiple sites. An easy read visual shared with operators can save pages of description in a how to guide
