3.     Art Spinanger, took the tools back to Procter and Gamble  (company of consumer goods) where he developed their work simplification program called the Deliberate Methods Change Program

4.     Ben S. Graham, Director of Formcraft Engineering at Standard Register Industrial, adapted the flow process chart to information processing with his development of the multi-flow process chart to display multiple documents and their relationships.
