Answer:

Every organization consists of a set of interacting processes. Each process includes a series of activities that utilize certain resources transforming the inputs into outputs:
- Inputs are the resources used or needed in the execution of a process or process step. They can be information, raw materials, ect.
- Outputs are the results of a process or process step.

When determining the inputs and outputs of each process, you don´t need to get into much detail, since identifying each step of every process could be a task with no end. Your company just need to understand how the transformation is carried out through a process to create the product or service offered by the organization.
