Set of linked activities that create a result; for example, hiring an employee or admitting a student.
Human activities used to create, invent, design, transform, produce, control, maintain and use products or systems. A systematic sequence of actions that combines resources to produce an output.
a series of actions taking place in an ordered sequence to produce a particular result
Activity that is related to changes in health status; also activity such as workload and management practice which describe the operation of a health care service. Example: Smoking prevention and cessation counselling is a process which should lead to lower smoking rates. Example: The number of hospital discharges per 10,000 population in a community is often used to describe how much work the hospital performs.
A task being performed by the computer.
Continuation of activities connected between them by flows of information and/or matters which they treat. From one or more entries (inputs) the process transforms a series of activities into a result (output) waited representing a value added for the customer. In other terms, the processes are places of creation of the value
Any social-political activity with a goal; e.g., with the word `Council,' to describe the mechanism by which the Council reaches decisions.
A process is a series of related activities aimed at achieving a set of objectives in a measurable, usually repeatable, manner. It will have defined information inputs and outputs, will consume resources and will be subject to management controls over time, cost and quality. It will also need to balance benefits against risks. A process defines what is to be achieved; procedures define how the objectives are to be achieved.
a sequence of activities that adds value by producing required outputs from a variety of inputs
A set of interrelated tasks in which value is added to the inputs to provide specific outputs. ()
1) v. To transform an input or set of inputs into a form with different characteristics, such as value, physical attributes, etc. 2) n. The environment, methods and resources used for a specific task or activity
the part of a system that combines resources to produce an output in response to input
Activity describing the targeted creation or changing of business objects or conditions, usually representing one or more R/3 transactions. EPCs portray processes in detail. Processes show how individual functions in R/3 can be linked to solve a business task. All the functions belonging to a process can be mapped as an EPC.
The sequence of steps by which an input is transformed into an output.
A change taking place in time, such that an input is transformed to an output. This can be cyclic if the sequence of changes is such that the output recreates the input (such as autocatalysis).
It is important to note that there is no single process for undertaking CCD activities. A CCD process is one which includes appropriate community participation, direction and control. Each activity and each community is likely to require a unique process - one, which is adapted to specifically address the unique features, requirements and aspirations of the community.
A sequence of related activities, or it may be a sequence of related tasks which make up an activity. These activities or tasks are usually interdependent, and there is a well-defined flow from one activity to another or from one task to another.
An organized sequence of operations (based on procedures) intended to produce specified results.
A set of interrelated activities, which transform inputs into outputs. (Note: The term "activities" covers use of resources.)
A business process is a sequence of business activities that aims at a certain result. A process spans over the entire company, across various departments, and it also may include partners and customers. With the BPM-System INTEGRATE!Comm&Work internal as well as external (cross company) business processes can be mapped, edited, routed and analyzed (Connect Partners, Consumers and Employees).
A set of activities that allows the firm to deliver its product to the customer. A process takes a collection of inputs and turns them into desired outputs by adding value to them.
A set of operations (functions), i.e., a sequence of behavior.
(as a type of indicator) the means or method used to deliver educational activities and services.
Element of a data flow diagram drawn as a circle that transforms an input data flow into an output data flow 14.17
1. (v.) A collective term referring to the series of activities required to gain intellectual control of records, papers, or collections, including: accessioning, arrangement, culling, boxing, labelling, description, and preservation. 2. (v.) In photography, the chemical treatment of exposed film to induce the latent image to ermerge. 3. (v.) With respect to automated records, the inputting of data into a data bank so that the data may be manipulated and called forth to serve a variety of needs.
The process, or software development process, is the method used to convert initial project requirements into a final system. The process typically consists of a number of phases, called activities.
an organized set of activities with defined inputs and outputs, performed to achieve a stated purpose.
A set of activities performed for a given purpose. Program: A major activity within an Enterprise having defined goals, objectives, requirements, and funding levels, and consisting of one or more projects (source - NPR 7120.5).
A collection of activities structured to produce a particular output.
A sequence of activities that starts with some type of input (e.g. raw materials) and ends with some type of output (e.g. a product). OEE can be used across a wide range of different processes, although it is most often associated with discrete manufacturing.
orderly arrangement of inter-related tasks that act and interact to perform some function within a particular environment and within a particular time period
A set of business tasks designed to deliver value to an internal or external client. A process may be comprised of any combination of subprocesses and activities.
process a sequence of images
Set of linked activities that create a result, for example, admitting a student or packaging financial aid.
an activity (carried out by a computer)
set of interrelated resources and activities which transform inputs into outputs
The sequence of activities (in software development) described in terms of the user roles, user tasks, rules, events, work products, resource use, and the relationships between them. It may include the specific design methodology, language, documentation standards etc.
one or more tasks. In general, a process is something that acts over time to change the attributes of objects. A process has three characteristics: a duration, an action, and resources.
The organized method of converting inputs (people, equipment, methods, materials, and environments) to outputs (products or services). The natural aggregation of work activities and tasks performed for program delivery.
A set of activities that must be performed to achieve some goal. The activities are usually expressed as a sequence of steps. In software development a process usually refers to activities that manipulate physical artifacts. This is because of the high intellectual content of software that is addressed by methodologies. Thus processes are usually rote activities with little intellectual context, other than the design of the process itself.
A set of inter-related activities, which transform inputs into outputs. They bring about a particular outcome, in terms of information to be gathered, decisions to be made, results and status that must be achieved.
Is a sequence of connected activities.
A set of related, interdependent activities carried out in a prescribed sequence to produce a particular output or outcome.
Consists of input, value-add, and output.
A finite series of activities as defined by its inputs, outputs, controls (for example, policy and standards), and resources needed to complete the activity. Defines "what" needs to be done. Compare to Procedure.
A set of related activities that are performed to deliver products, services or results.
Set or group of activities that produce products and services for customers.
The active component (as opposed to its binary image) of a program managed by an operating system.
A collection of related activities that take inputs, transforms them, and produces outputs. Implemented processes are enabled through people, tools and information.
A set of interrelated or interacting activities which transform inputs into outputs.
The programmed, sequenced set of things actually done to carry out a program mission.
A set of tasks defining some particular work unit that is of interest to be described, defined, or monitored as a single entity.
A set of activities that need to be performed to accomplish a business goal.
A set of activities that produces products and services for customers.
A set of instructions, as in a computer program or application, that is currently active (i.e., consuming CPU time and memory resources).
In the SAP Reference Structure, description of the smallest self-contained business task in the SAP System. Processes show in detail how individual functions in the system are logically and sequentially linked. A process is carried out in the form of transactions. You can map processes as event-driven process chains.
The sequence of activities and decisions required to convert a known input into a planned output.
The injection molding environment consisting of input variables such as temperature, pressure, injection rates and time that are controlled to fill the mold while optimizing the tradeoffs between cosmetics and dimensional accuracy.
A process (Latin procedere = to go forward; past participle of processus) generally means the substantive and logical sequence of functions, which is necessary for providing an object in a specified final condition. From this, special processes are derived depending on the particular context.
Process (lat. processus - movement) is a naturally occurring or designed sequence of changes of properties/attributes of a system/object. More precisely, and from the most general systemic perspective, every process is representable as a particular trajectory (or part thereof) in a system's phase space.
In science, a process is every sequence of changes of a real object/body which is observable using scientific method. Therefore, all sciences analyse and model processes.
