Define Network Process Flow

The activities associated with the gathering and interpretation of high level processes, work and information flows. The purpose of Network Process Flow Definition is to get a comprehensive understanding of the high level work and information flows in your supply chain and the connections and process interdependencies in your supply chain. Information collected includes: Nodes, processes, connections and interdependencies.

Notes

The scope of the Value Stream Maps at this point should capture the total supply chain, not just a single entity or node. Material flow maps connect nodes of a supply chain, Thread diagrams connects processes. Thread diagrams can help clarify where the process is changes from customer order driven to plan driven (see Customer Order Decoupling Point). t:VSM
