Process mapping is an essential tool for business process re‐engineering. During the initial steps of business process re‐engineering process mapping is used to evaluate the existing processes and to identify their non‐value added activities. Presents a method for determining the most economical way to determine the levels of process mapping for the purpose of re‐designing. Using this approach, the process designer can determine how many levels of process mapping are required for a given process and how much it is likely to cost. Accordingly, this approach is a more realistic tool for budgeting for process mapping costs and for determining the cost‐effective level of mapping. This approach is based on balancing the usefulness against the cost of collecting the information through process mapping. The main benefit from this approach is an overall reduction in the cost of business process re‐engineering. Therefore this approach may be referred to as the least cost process mapping. This is because this method can be used to determine the optimum level of process mapping and the least cost of process mapping.
