What is a Process?

A series of actions (or activities) that transforms inputs (or resources) into a desired product, service, or outcome.

There are different types of work processes within the workplace.

•There is the process flow a “part/vehicle” follows throughout a sequence of defined work areas within production.

•There is a “standardized process” a team member follows that creates value-added work within a particular work station in order to ensure repeatability.

•In administration there are “standard operating procedures” that are followed in order to create a consistent output.
