A Process is an organized group of related activities, tasks and procedures, that together create a result of value to the customer, and once completed, will accomplish an organizational goal.
In the context of EPC, Processes can be under a set, or under another process as a sub-process. There can be many levels of processes; these are arranged in a hierarchical structure to simplify navigation and organization.
