The Contents

The Process Map can contain maps for up to three process states, including current state, near state, and future state

Current State defines the beginning process – describes the who, what, when, where and why of the process while pointing to the how (tasks are executed).

Near State is developed from current state as improvements are incorporated and the process moves toward deployment.

Future State builds upon the prior process definition and analysis to develop a streamlined process vision that incorporates best practices and future software/automation capabilities.
