What is a PPM?

Picture Process Map’s (PPM) use a combination of text, symbols and pictures to provide standard operating procedures for each critical utility or piece of equipment to provide all personnel working with the equipment information and instructions on what is required in order to maintain, operate, and clean the utility or piece of equipment.

PPM’s are based on how the brain most effectively processes information. Research has shown that:

PMM’s provide intuitive, concise and easy to use detailed instruction while simultaneously reducing the volume of text required in complex procedures.
In this case, “a picture saves a thousand words”, decreases the probability of error and improves task performance.
