A process flowchart where functional responsibility is divided into lanes (columns, rows). Peter gives a great example.
It can be called many things (I think deployment chart is popular in automotive)

A process is represented by a pool (a box with "pool-ish" dimensions)
The pool is divided into lanes (responsibility asignment)
