BPM Live Cycle

De levenscyclus van een bedrijfsproces bestaat uit 5 fasen:

  1. Model
  2. Deploy
  3. Execute
  4. Monitor
  5. Execute

It goes far beyond automating business processes (software) or solving business problems (suite). BPM enables business to respond to changing consumer, market, and regulatory demands faster than competitors[citation needed] – creating competitive advantage.

As of 2010 technology has allowed the coupling of BPM to other methodologies, such as Six Sigma. BPM (tools) allow users to:

  • vision – strategize functions and processes
  • define – baseline the process or the process improvement
  • model – simulate the change to the process
  • analyze – compare the various simulations to determine an optimal improvement
  • improve – select and implement the improvement
  • control – deploy this implementation and by use of user-defined dashboards monitor the improvement in real time and feed the performance information back into the simulation model in preparation for the next improvement iteration
  • re-engineer – revamp the processes from scratch for better results
