Process Mapping Using the Integrated Definition Language for Functional Modeling (IDEF-0)
Joe Crance, CSSBB and CQE
Abstract: While there have been a plethora of articles and presentations on process mapping, a particularly insightful process mapping approach is Integrated Definition Language for Functional Modeling (IDEF-0). Whereas traditional flow charts can become confusing when mapping a complex process, and traditional value streams may be too high to assist in methods engineering, the IDEF methodology allows a robust systems view that can drill down to the user’s need. The presentation will cover:
- A History of IDEF
- How IDEF Captures a System’s View. . .Better
- Principles of Process Mapping With IDEF
- Benefits of Using IDEF
- Case Study Example
