Process Modeling

iGrafx enables Process Analysts, Methodologists and Process Improvement teams to perform Process Modeling and Design quickly and easily while providing robust features well beyond an ordinary mapping tool. We understand that documenting your processes can be hard. Additionally, understanding exactly who owns or performs each processes and tasks, what systems they interact with, or even how long it takes can be a challenge. iGrafx modeling components are designed to increase modeling productivity and allow different continuous improvement roles to accomplish their tasks more effectively as part of an enterprise-wide approach to process excellence.

Process Capture

Through iGrafx web-based Business Transformation Platform, capture, store and manage processes and all related information as reusable knowledge to accelerate projects and provide process transparency and understanding.

Increase transparency and improve onboarding by bringing siloed process knowledge out of minds of your staff and making it easily reusable to your entire organization. Our award winning “Easy to Use” process mapping and modeling interface captures and documents your process flows, helping your organization be more productive in developing, documenting, communicating, and managing business process information.

iGrafx automatically manages many of the drawing tasks to capture processes quickly while ensuring consistency.

We provide:

  • Intuitive modeling of BPMN and cross-functional Swimlane® diagrams.
  • Use templates and correct-by-construction modeling to build models faster.
  • Model from anywhere with browser and mobile access.
  • Easily manage complex processes with drag & drop hierarchy structure.
  • Include process behaviors such as resources, decisions, rules, and more.
  • Quickly convert existing process maps into BPMN format for time-to-deployment advantage.
  • Easily share your processes and related content in SOP or Process Narratives.
  • Capture and share classic or extended Value Stream Maps.

Process Mining can also be a great way to capture your known processes and validate what you believe to be true.  If you are using process mining applications to capture your process information, iGrafx allows for the import and export of standard BPMN formats to expedite the exchange of relevant process and performance information.

Clearly, iGrafx helps reduce the time it takes to document processes and business systems, and helps you achieve a clear understanding of how to reduce waste and costs while increasing customer satisfaction.

BPMN 2.0: Communicate Business Processes Clearly & Effectively

The iGrafx Business Transformation Platform is the solution when it comes to defining, improving, and implementing your company’s business processes. BPMN 2.0 (Business Process Model and Notation 2.0) is the current standard for business process modeling. It allows processes to be mapped graphically and displayed transparently for the entire organization. Visualization is one of the most important prerequisites for understanding. By modeling visually meaningful business processes, you increase the likelihood that processes will be understood within your organization. With iGrafx’ s comprehensive process modeling software, you also create a solid foundation for analysis and optimization and can effectively communicate changes to all stakeholders.

Easy-to-use process management software from iGrafx helps organizations bridge communication gaps and implement processes faster. iGrafx supports the most common process modeling styles and notations, from simple flowcharts to cross-functional diagrams with departmental trajectories (swimlanes) to powerful standards such as BPMN or very specialized business process modeling methodologies such as Lean Value Stream Mapping, Customer Journey Mapping and IDEF0.

Maximize process modeling productivity and minimize the occurrence of errors with process management software.

Using powerful diagramming features of our business process management software like BPMN, you can effortlessly model processes through an intuitive user interface that automatically relieves you of many drawing steps. Quickly placing symbols, reusing model objects in diagrams, and dragging and dropping sub-processes saves you time, allows you to quickly capture processes, and ensures consistency. Modeling processes has never been easier.

Process Mining can also be a great way to capture your known processes and validate what you believe to be true.  If you are using process mining applications to capture your process information, iGrafx allows for the import and export of standard BPMN formats to expedite the exchange of relevant process and performance information.

The iGrafx Business Transformation Platform brings the power of process knowledge to increase modeling productivity, so you spend less time documenting processes and more time creating business value.

 

Operational Excellence

Easily Perform Analysis for Innovation and Continuous Improvement and build your business case for change in a controlled environment.

  • Perform discrete event simulation to foresee the results of changes.
  • Visualize dynamic animation of simulation steps to identify bottlenecks and delays.
  • View side-by-side comparison of the As-Is and To-Be.
  • Improve accuracy of simulation results through statistical fitting of real-world data.

We understand that many processes may not have all the details and data necessary to decide where to best optimize. Process Mining can shed light on your process and show you how work is really performed and where there are potential compliance issues. Through our partnerships with Process Mining vendors, these models and data can be imported directly into the iGrafx Business Transformation Platform and connected to your overall business architecture.

Additionally, with your processes now clearly mapped, modeled, and understood iGrafx gives you the mechanisms to identify and test methods of further optimizing and improving.  This may include reviewing opportunities for improvement by using iGrafx powerful Discrete Event Simulation to do what-if analysis on multiple process improvement scenarios or uncover opportunities for possible Robotic Process Automation (RPA) or Workflow Automation, all without disrupting your production environment.

The iGrafx Business Transformation Platform brings the power of process knowledge to increase modeling productivity, so you spend less time documenting processes and more time creating business value.
