A Process takes inputs and transforms them into outputs, and may be connected to other Processes in process flows.

A Process happens in an organizational Context.
Context: The Project 3D scanning for dentistry

Design open source and low cost 3D scanning devices for dentistry applications.

This process is connected to other processes to fulfill a Work order.
Order: Work order 258 for R&D for 3D scanning for Dentistry due: 2017-10-23

This Process:

Manufacturing stage to R&D for 3D scanning for Dentistry starting 2017-10-16 ending 2017-10-23

This is the last stage of an R&D process. The output is a product, which is a functional thing. This process is about modifying the last and best working prototype, itself based on the best design, in order to fit manufacturing processes, and product design requirements, informed by a marketing research. The output is a production recipe.

This process is also known as Production Ramp-up: The product is made by using the intended production system. The purpose of the ramp-up is to train the workforce and to workout any remaining problems in the production processes. Products produced during production ramp-up are sometimes supplied to preferred customers and are carefully evaluated to identify any remaining flaws. The transition from production ramp-up to ongoing production is usually gradual. At some point in this transition, the product is launched and becomes available for widespread distribution. A postlaunch project review may occur shortly after the launch. This review includes an assessment of the project from both commercial and technical perspectives and intended to identify ways to improve the development process for future projects.
