Keywords: production process, analysis, graphical analysis


The article presents the review of mostly used methods of graphical analysis of production processes. In the text were briefly characterised all main type of methods of analysis of production processes including: traditional methods (time research and traffic research), comprehensive research, modelling and simulation-based methods and graphical methods. Graphical analysis methods such as: process mapping, value stream mapping, Ishikawa diagrams, schedules, Gantt's charts, Pareto-Lorenz’s diagrams, spaghetti diagrams, production variety funnels, analysis of the decision-making point, and examples of their application were described.
