PRO BUSINESS MODELING PROCESS OVERVIEW
In 2011 the Business Process Management Initiative, sponsored by scores of academic and industry players, released Business Process Modeling and Notation-2 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Business_Process_Model_and_Notation) which, for the first time, creates and industry-wide common language for documenting and, more importantly, improving business processes. For executives who have attempted to model their company’s process the largest barrier is inevitably the different levels of detail, modeling approaches (from ‘brown butcher paper’ to Viseo) and semantics (verb/object) that are randomly adopted by various functional groups within a company.
What ‘Robert’s Rules of Order’ brought to running effective meeting and governments in 1876; and what Strunk & White’s ‘Elements of Style’ brought to English composition in 1923 has now arrived for business executives to drive dramatic simplification, standardization and innovation into their organizations.
PRO — USE OF BPMN2
PRO’s optimization capabilities include robust process simulation for in-depth ability to analyze and highlight improvement opportunities including process performance and efficiency, customer satisfaction or resource utilization. Modeling process changes allows insight to see results and implications of processes changes without immediate financial or resource commitment.
PRO simulation includes the ability to implement a costing methodology that identifies the process activities in your organization and assigns the cost of each activity and actual consumption of resources during the process execution. Quantitative time-based and cost-related results isolate waiting times, throughput times, completed process instances, resource utilization and cost per instance.
