This article introduces a summary chart for business process mapping. The chart shows both a brief and a full format for process mapping.
One of our readers asked us for a business process mapping chart, so here it is.
The process map consists of two parts:
- a chart showing business functions, business processes they include, and
possibly sub-processes of those business processes
- a list of business processes showing their sub-processes and their dependencies.
The process map is typically created in either a brief or a full format.
The brief format includes a chart of business functions and processes followed by a list of subprocesses and their dependencies for each business process.
The full format process map adds more detail. The chart includes sub-processes in this case, and the business process list is expanded with detailed information about every sub-process:
- business requirements
- activities in sub-process
- input data: source
- input data: key attributes
- business rules
- data transformation (processing)
- output data: destination
- output data: key attributes
- user role
- business process automation
