A process flow chart is a staple of Lean, and other continuous improvement methods.
It takes a process and transforms it into a visual representation of the flow of work. This makes it easy to highlight waste, and subsequently eliminate the things that don’t add value.
A process flow chart can be simple or complex. In general, a flow chart used to document a process is far less detailed than one that is created for the specific purpose of improving a process.
There are other specialized icons that are used in process flow charts, but those listed above are the main ones you will run across.
