Please Help! Spaghetti chart - Take a Floor Plan of the Plant and Track the Movement of Product

I am looking for the name of a particular graph. Perhaps someone can help me.

It is where you take a floor plan of the plant and track the movement of a product or a person throughout the day or project, creating a continuous line that meanders through the facility. I may not be explaining this correctly, but maybe it'll get things going.

Thank you!

What you might be describing is commonly called a "spaghetti chart". It is where you actually show the path the individual travels as seen from overhead. It is used to show wasted movement and the need for better placement of tools, equipment, materials and testing stuff.

Does that help?

I think db's got it...we have one. The lines are different colors and are solid or dotted to show the difference between products, etc.

YES! Spaghetti chart! That's what I was looking for. Thanks Dave (and Isogirl). I couldn't remember the name of it, even though I've used it. I am putting together some training materials for Lean Enterprise and ran into this snag. Thanks again.
