It might help to give us some context for your question.  For example, if
interested in process in business, then it emerges in the late 19th century
and in the second half of the 20th becomes process management, TQM etc.  If
in science, then it is language substituted for what otherwise we all think
of as the scientific method.  Even earlier the notions of methods and
techniques are embodiments of the idea of process.  Hence, my request for
context.
