The Spaghetti Map allows users to document the setup of any work area with the goal of mapping the movement of individuals during the completion of a specific process. This template enables the documentation of the movement, the distance travelled as well as the time it takes to walk that distance during the completion of manufacturing as well as transactional processes. This tool gets its name from the tendency of a finished diagram to resemble cooked spaghetti.
