oh wait sorry, you said sediment. well for sedimentary 1st, weathering and erosion, then deposition, and last lithification/cementation

lithification is the name of the process. it basically involves either a chemical composition change (gluing the sediments together) or pressure (like sediments at the bottom of the ocean becoming sandstone)
