Process descriptions have developed in different fields resulting in emphasis on different process elements. To date process improvement has relied on a wider understanding of process than is contained in the description. We examine different process elements as they emerged over time and through various domains. While it is possible to develop theoretical models of processes, including the process elements, a reasonable starting point is to assume that industry has gradually evolved some idea of process elements through implementing process improvements. A survey of process improvements is described in which the changed process elements are identified. The survey data and findings are described before drawing conclusions and recommending work that should be performed as a consequence of those findings.
