Business Process Management with inubit BPM - Process Modeling and Simulation

inubit BPM at Edeka Hannover Minden

"We have managed to cut the time required for entering new articles in half and focus even more on data quality assurance. Paperless communication in the now media discontinuity-free process also saves about 300,000 pages of paper."

Process Modeling and Simulation: intuitive, user-friendly design, systematic graphical approach


 

inubit BPM offers you all the tools required to graphically model and optimize processes, rules, organizations, resources, and IT systems. This creates the basis for subsequent process automation. The model-based approach means that business users need no programming experience to work intuitively with inubit BPM and provide input to the modeling process at any stage.

All model types have a completely hierarchical structure and are fully connectable. The software also allows you to import existing processes from external systems. Process models are versioned and stored – with access permissions – in the central repository and in several languages, if appropriate.

 

Graphical process modeling

Simulation of process and rule models

 
Graphical process modeling

You can model processes for specific activities as Business Process Diagrams (BPDs) in accordance with BPMN 2.0. A built-in validation function verifies that the process models comply with the defined syntax rules, enabling business users without specific BPMN knowhow to model their own processes.

In addition to the individual process models, you can also create process maps for visualizing the entire process landscape including responsibilities.

Simulation of process models

Modeled workflows can be simulated prior to their technical implementation. The simulation is carried out step by step to permit each stage of the process to be validated separately, allowing time and costs to be calculated for alternative paths.

The extended simulation goes even further, realistically incorporating all necessary and available resources (materials, personnel, work schedules, etc.) and therefore indicating the actual output times and loads. Graphical feedback helps you to evaluate the results.

 

Visualizing coporate structures

Documentation and quality assurance

 
Visualizing corporate structures

To display the corporate structure, you can model or incorporate (via Active Directory, LDAP, or SAP HR) org charts. This enables you to model the organization and define personnel resources, including organizational units, roles, representatives, and working times.

In addition, system diagrams visualize the IT and service infrastructure (including via SOA maps) and allow you to configure third-party systems and manage partners.

Documentation and quality assurance

In order to show defined company processes to all employees in the interest of transparency or to have them available in the context of an ISO audit, you can publish all process models in the intranet portal using the Process Viewer. Another standard feature of inubit BPM is the documentation of processes in the form of a process manual. The reports you need can be automatically generated, and their scope, layout, and format can be configured individually.
