Transparent Processes through Process Modeling

Everyday work in organizations is characterized by extensive tasks and complex processes. Often, aimlessness and chaos are the result. Due to the lack of transparency, organizational strategies can no longer be accomplished satisfactorily. Visual process modeling helps you to structure your daily work, optimize processes and thus achieve your goal faster.

Uncover hidden potential thanks to extensive process modeling

In general, a process is defined as a sequence of activities in an organization to perform an operational performance. Accordingly, processes play a central role in the everyday work of companies by defining remits, documenting responsibilities and transparently illustrating procedures. Thereby, process modeling is a method and at the same time a relevant tool for capturing specific activities that are necessary for the implementation of individual business processes in organizations.

By illustrating complex processes using suitable software, business processes can be mapped in a clear and intuitive way that is easily understandable for all participants.

How process modeling creates added value for your organization

The primary goal of modeling processes is to capture, document and visualize existing manual business processes. Get visible results quickly and develop improvement suggestions for your management. Reduce unnecessary working steps and establish targeted instructions. In addition to that, a data-based process analysis helps you to identify potential for optimization and thus reduces costs in the long run. This simplifies communication throughout the whole organization, accelerates processes and reduces overall costs in the long term. Companies benefit from the advantages of process modeling regardless of their size, industry or organizational form. By means of using a suitable tool for process modeling, you lay the foundations for rapid growth and the accomplishment of your business goals.

Visualize your business processes using various modeling notations

Requirements for process models are diverse. To live up to them and to implement targeted modeling, you can pick from various modeling notations and model types. The most common and internationally used forms are:

  • Business Process Model and Notation
  • Event-Driven Process Chain (EPC)
  • Value Chain Diagram (VCD)
  • Decision Management Notation (DMN)
  • Customer Journey Map
  • Risk Diagram
  • Archimate
  • Structural Diagram
  • Organizational Chart
  • Entity-Relationship Diagram (ERD)

What kind of procedure should be adhered to during process modeling?

The process landscape should be structured over several levels, from the overall picture to the details. Starting from the process map, which includes all process areas, it should be possible to navigate graphically across several levels into the detailed processes.

As part of business process management, the process landscape is structured over several levels. At Levels 1 to n, the process areas are refined, for example using Value Chain Diagrams (VCD), BPMN or EPC process diagrams. The number of levels varies depending on the department or the size of an organization.
