Home > Lean Terms & Definitions > Process Mapping


A visual representation of steps — the actual sequence of events that any product, service, or process follows. Flow (both direction and elapsed time) can be shown. Process maps can be at macro, intermediate, or micro levels. Consistent detail is important to illustrate complexity, problem areas, redundancy, unnecessary loops, and where simplification & standardization may be possible.
