Handling Symbol

Handling Symbol for Business Process Mapping

In an information process, activities that do not involve information change.
  • ...reading/using information to determine what to do (decision, lookup, filing...)
  • ...physical paper shuffling
  • ...electronic paper shuffling (i.e., keying through e-docs, app screens...)
In production work, make-ready and put-away tasks.
Handling operations are typically the most common symbol on a chart, and since they are not adding value to items being processed, they are attractive opportunities for streamlining.
