SAP resource efficiency tool 4: Developing a process flow

A major hospital may have 360+ budget-holding departments, many of which are interlinked to produce a process.  For example if we follow a patient through an operation it may involve the ward, porters, reception area, anaesthetics, theatre, recovery, and return to ward.  Our purpose in doing a process flow is to highlight the activity as a carbon-using, carbon-wasting machine, to see it in a new light.
