Graham Process Mapping
or Box and Arrow Flowchart
Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored. - Aldous Huxley
Here's a box and arrow flowchart of a simple software order process.
Click here to see the detail...
Since processing software orders is something that we do here, we
modified text in the flowchart slightly to reflect our process (The
number of activities and decisions are the same.)
This Graham Process Map took less
than a day to prepare. Obviously, the image is too small to read,
but if you look at the pdf view (Graham
Chart (113 KB)
), you will see that it clearly shows all
the people involved in the process (look for blue text on some of
the symbols - if a system or program performs a step, that's
displayed as well). It shows where the work takes place (look
for the red text on beginning symbols and on the arrows). It
shows all the items (documents, forms, databases, screens, email...)
that are being worked on (they are identified in the rectangle boxes
at the left end of every line). It includes 151 steps and 39
different items. Graham Process Maps provide real transparency.
