A process flow diagram (PFD) is a diagram commonly used in engineering to indicate the general flow of plant processes and equipment. The PFD displays the relationship between major equipment of a plant facility and does not show minor details such as piping details and designations.
The process of extracting Palm Oil from Oil Palm Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFBs) is long established. It is done using broadly the same technique but with one of three different technologies. A process flow diagram (PFD) of palm oil milling process is shown as figure below.
The Process Flow Chart provides a visual representation of the steps in a process. Flow charts are also referred to as Process Mapping or Flow Diagrams. Constructing a flow chart is often one of the first activities of a process improvement effort, because of the following benefits:
- Gives everyone a clear understanding of the process
- Helps to identify non-value-added operations
- Facilitates teamwork and communication
- Keeps everyone on the same page
