. Process Modeling is a structured activity modeling technique focused on defining the various activities performed in the creation of an organization's products or services. It is essential in understanding "What" work is being done in the organization, i.e. the "Right Things". Process Mapping
. Process Mapping is a structured technique that focuses on "How" that work is performed. Value Stream Mapping
will focus on defining the cycle time and lead time of product/service production and identifying value added and non-value added work. Both techniques are critical to gaining a full understanding of the interactions of the process and ensuring the organization is doing "Things Right". Process Modeling/Mapping Analysis
. Process Modeling/Mapping Analysis aids an organization in determining what activities it should, and should not, be doing thus focusing it on the "Right Things done Right".
- Overview of Business Process Management (BPM).
- In-Depth look at Process Modeling using IDEF 0.
- In-Depth look at Process Mapping.
- Building a Value Stream Map.
- Analyzing Process models and maps.
This workshop is designed to provide the student an understanding of how Process/Activity Modeling and Mapping techniques are applied to an organization as part of developing an integrated process management system. Process Modeling is one of the critical steps in determining the cost of activities during a reengineering effort, implementing business process management, enterprise resource planning (ERP), information system development or Commercial Activities (A-76) review.
Process Mapping and Value Stream Mapping are critical in determining the cycle time/lead time for product/service production through the process. The workshop provides a solid foundation for anyone involved in, or interested in, the design, implementation, or application of Process/Activity Based Management systems.
