Business Process Modeling

Sometimes business is operating at peak efficiency. To make sure that an organization is doing as well as it potentially can be, you do not need to make an improvement, re-evaluate and re-work the process constantly. Business process modeling is a good way for that.

What is Business Process Modeling?

Business process modeling allows for dynamic
and detailed analysis of current or proposed processes.

By enabling analysts to test process ideas under simulated conditions before putting those ideas into practice, business process modelling plays the main role in technology-assisted business process management (BPM). One key criterion for evaluating BPM platforms, then, is the degree to which they facilitate effective business process modelling.

What is Business Process Modeling?

Business process modeling (BP Modeling) is the graphical representation of a company’s business workflow or processes, which mean the process of identifying potential improvements.

BP modeling is used to map two different states of the process. First, As-is, the state of the process as it is right now, without making any changes or improvements, and second is To-be, the future state, after making the improvements or any changes to the process.

Business process modelling

Business process modeling is usually switched with business process mapping. They’re both used to represent processes to identify potential weaknesses or improvements graphically. The popular distinction between the two are:

Business Process Mapping

Dealings with both high-level and low-level mapping. It can be a very general representation of a process, without getting into too much detail, or pretty much the exact opposite.

Business Process Modeling

Deals specifically with low-level process maps, with the main purpose being process improvement.

While business process modelling. BP Modeling is extremely useful. It’s not usually used as a stand-alone. Having a graphical representation of a process is good, but without the right implementation, you won’t go too far.

The benefit of Business Process Modeling

At it’s most basic, business process modeling helps with introspection. You can deeply be understanding of how your processes work and how your business functions. However, besides there are some other benefits.

Improving Efficiency - Business Process Modelling

Improving Efficiency

The main function of BP modeling is to improve the way the processes are done. As a given, you’ll find different ways to improve the way the process works, which leads to higher efficiency, productivity, output, and finally, profits.

Enforce Best-Practices & Standardization - Business Process Modelling

Enforce Best-Practices & Standardization

If you’re running a big organization, there’s a good chance that different teams do the same process differently. Creating the best-practice design ensures that everyone knows how to do the process.
Process Activity - Business Process Modelling

Process Activity

If BP analysis is the norm in the organization, they will eventually develop a culture of innovation and change. By continuously managing your business operations, you will be able to evolve in the face of technological changes.
Transparency - Business Process Modelling

Transparency

Everyone within your organization will be aware of how your processes work, what is the business goal, how it operates, etc. This leads to accountability, who owns what process becomes transparent.
Beat Competition - Business Process Modelling

Beat the Competition

As a result of all the other benefits we have mentioned, you will be able to beat and overcome your competition in the long run.

Business Process Modeling technique

BP Modeling has a different technique. Here are the three most popular technique.

  • Flowchart

    Flowcharts are the most widely and easier tecnique used in BP Modeling. The way this works is self-explanatory where you map your processes step by step.

    The exact way you do is up to you. The main idea, however, is to make it easy to understand easily. There are three ways to create a flow chart, using pen & paper, template flow software, or workflow management software.

     

  • Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN)

    BPMN is an open industry standard for BP modeling and is being developed by BPMI (Business Process Management Initiative). It is a standard method for mapping the flow map; meaning, the objects used are determined by the methodology, not the person who performs the mapping.

    BPMN can be done in the same way as flowcharts, with the only difference being that you will use the elements in the graph as defined by the BPMN methodology, not your own preference.

     

  • Data Flow Diagram

    The data flow diagram is designed to show the flow of data from one source to another. It explains how this process relates to each other and to those who use it.

    However, it should be noted that DFD is not about the technical aspects of data storage. On the other hand, how data flows through different processes.

How to do Business Process Modeling?

There is no one-size-all solution for business process modeling. At the end of the day, it depends on what you are trying to achieve. Normally, however, if you go for process or re-engineering improvements, there are three business process modeling steps:

Model Existing Process

1. Model Existing Process

Use one of the BP modeling techniques to put the process you’re working with down on paper (or software).

Identify Inefficiencies & Potential Improvements

2. Identify Inefficiencies & Potential Improvements

How well does the process work? Is it effective? Does it meet the operational goals? Are there any steps in a process that is too wasteful?
Design To-Be Process

3. Design To-Be Process

Design the new and improved process depending on your findings in step #2, and finally, put it into practice.

As we’ve mentioned before, though, the implementation of the new process is as important as the modeling. So, it’s highly recommended to use BP modeling as a part of Business Process Management (BPM).
