I assume the point they're trying to get across is that the Karnaugh map provides on paper instructions as to follow when simplifying a Boolean function.

For example, plotting out '1' in the boxes corresponding to each true output will enable you to see similarities, thus you can eliminate common variables leaving you with an overall simpler expression.
