German term or phrase: unterirdische Vortriebsverfahren
I've called my Pressrohr, which is used as a tool for excavating soil and can be entered by a workman, a driving pipe. A Vortriebsschild is a driving shield. So is Vortriebsverfahren driving processes?

underground (pipe) driving method
Explanation:
This is my suggestion. You can of course utilize different combinations:

instead of "underground" - sub-level, subterranean

"driving", or "heading" method is ok for civil engineering work

your "process" should also be OK.
