Through its central repository, Process Central stores, manages and distributes all relevant processes and related information. iGrafx Process Central complements iGrafx Process Modeling and Analysis products to provide them with a platform for document control, lifecycle management, team collaboration and storage of reusable process knowledge. This process knowledge is available for organization-wide communication leading to increased process transparency and understanding.
iGrafx Process Central is a contributing tool for iGrafx solutions in:
- iGrafx Collaborative Process Management – Create, Manage and Share process information
Leverage the unique knowledge and skills of peers
iGrafx Process Central leverages the contributions to process excellence made by process modelers and analysts to be shared, improved, added-upon, simulated, de-composed. Process optimization and improvement projects can leverage all available process information including process maps, analysis reports, spreadsheets and related documents.
Guarantee consistent enterprise information among models
Capitalize on a central resource model that ensures consistency of how responsibilities are represented in your process maps. A shared, referenced resource model promotes correct-by-construction department identification in diagrams as well as uniformity in how human and system resources are included in simulation models.
Protect the process capital that define your business
Keep your models safe and accessible, meeting governance requirements while also making workflow more efficient. Access control ensures processes are modified or viewed only by those with appropriate rights. Versioning and audit trails maintain accurate document history. Finding process information and relevant supporting documentation is easy with hierarchical process navigation and powerful search and query features. Dynamic links from processes to supporting information maintain integrity. Integration with Microsoft® SharePoint expands process visibility to additional areas of your organization.
Work together for improved efficiency
Overcome silos in your business! Either through the modeling application or through a role-based web portal, Process Experts collaborate on processes and reuse the process knowledge that has been built up over time. Teams can work on the same files at the same time. Process optimization and improvement projects can leverage all available process information and share content between files. With Web and mobile access, process consumers can annotate or comment on processes.
Communicate process across the enterprise
People across the organization with a role in processes, either as experts, owners or performers of process, have a transparent view into the part they play and changes that will affect them. Process knowledge stored in the central repository can be communicated to those with appropriate access rights, through a role-based portal in a web browser or on mobile devices
Streamline document workflow
Managing process documents through multiple stages of maturity is important not only from a regulatory perspective, but also for a systematic approach to process development. Process models can progress from drafts to review stages through approval and sign-off with sophisticated capabilities for making sure the right people are informed and involved at the right stages.
