Definition: 

Process is an implementation of an algorithm. It is the series of steps taken as a whole. It is decomposable into ProcessSteps, but this decomposition is not necessary.

Explanatory Notes: 

In a descriptive document, Process Overview provides a means of presenting the reader with a clear view of an overall process without going into the details of the process steps. Process Overview should be used when a description of the process in general is all that is desired.

Example: 
In descriptive document regarding ingest of a study into a repository: "Validation processes were run comparing all data against the provided documentation to check for out-of-range and invalid content."
