X and Y Variables Data

Use the X Variables Data and Y Variables Data forms to review, add, edit, or delete variables data on a process map.
These forms answer the following questions.
  • Which variables are associated with a shape?
  • Are there any unmapped variables that can be mapped to a shape on any process map?
  • Which variables can be deleted because they have no impact on the process?


  • Before you create process maps, use the forms as tools to generate a list of potential variables in your process. This method creates unmapped variables, which you can later add to shapes on any process map in the project.
  • After you create process maps, you can open the forms to review, add, edit, or delete the variables in all process maps in the project.
