Perceptive Process Modeling
Equip yourself to define and re-design your processes
The underlying processes of an organization define how a business operates, how it keeps its customers satisfied, how it generates revenue, and how it controls risks. Business processes are a strategic and essential asset for a business to distinguish itself from its competitors.
The first step in almost any major improvement project is to analyze and define business processes, and then communicate those processes to those who need them. This applies whether the project involves integrating standalone IT systems, making best use of the new Business Process Management tools, or creating process-based instructions to comply with ISO 9000.
Processes are the everyday work of all those who help create a product or service. Collectively, these individuals are the knowledge experts on process. Process modeling empowers them to work together to define the current process, identify pain points, and prioritize necessary change.
It is impossible to improve a process without knowing how that process currently is executed and how it performs. Process modeling offers an integrated set of modeling tools, collaboration tools and publication capabilities to:
- Allow business users to create, discuss, and improve process models
- Operationally support current models with process manuals
Perceptive Process Modeling was built to support the modeling of processes in workshop sessions, led by experienced employees who bring first-hand process knowledge to the table. It is ideal for giving process participants a quick overview without having to explain concepts like process objects or process constructs. However, it is fully capable of linking Perceptive Process parts to other process objects, norms, performance indicators and risks — as well as illustrating their relationship and analyzing the impact of changing individual process assets.
Additional features of Perceptive Process Modeling include:
- Collaborative work environment: Process, indicator and organizational models are available from the multi-user Process Explorer environment, which allows process design participants to review, share, edit, and copy models and re-use objects—with full version control.
- Process manual generation: Give your users a knowledge base for effective process execution with manuals generated by Perceptive Process Modeling. Publish your manuals in Word or HTML to provide them as a readily accessible handbook for less-experienced personnel, or use them as a reference manual for procedural guidelines and best practices, fostering professionalism.
Best of all, Perceptive Process Modeling is part of Perceptive Process, a complete BPM suite that also allows you to discover, design, execute, and improve your processes, bringing agility and continuous improvement to your process management. Using this complete suite allows you to turn process design into process practice and to transform process execution data into valuable process improvement insight.
