Its visual modeling environment is as easy to use as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint or Visio. It is a graphical, drag-and-drop tool that allows users to visually design a process map. The Modeler then guides the users to add relevant business rules and process information regarding the business process that they are documenting.
This is based on the drag-and-drop Canvas area and a Palette of process objects that the users can drag-and-drop in the canvas to design a flow. These include Process Activities, Start and End Events, Gateways or Decision Nodes, Connecting Sequence Flows, Swim Lanes, and Annotation objects.
These process objects allow any business process to be visually represented in the canvas.
Swim Lanes based Process Maps
AccuProcess Modeler allows these process map flowcharts to utilize swim-lanes so that all the work associated with a specific person or team is visually represented in a way that is easy to describe, comprehend and understand. Tasks and jobs associated with a person or group of co-workers is shown in a single swim-lane to segment it separately from responsibilities of other individuals and teams. This complies with the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) standard.
Process Hierarchies and Sub-Processes
AccuProcess allows many levels of process flow hierarchy to be represented in a process model. Most real life process models are complex and they can be best represented in multiple levels for ease of understanding and for better visual presentation. AccuProcess allows specific process steps in a parent process flow to be marked as sub-processes and then attach other child processes to these sub-process activities thereby creating a hierarchical process structure. A sub-process can be opened immediately from a higher level flow by simply right clicking on a sub-process step. A process flow can have any number of sub-process flows and there can be many levels in the process hierarchy.
Standards Based Process Mapping
AccuProcess Modeler is an easy-to-use but powerful business process mapping tool that is ideal for designing business processes and for documenting rules. It follows the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) standard to make the task of designing processes easier and transparent without the need for extensive training by users.
The Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) standard provides businesses with the capability of understanding their internal business procedures in a graphical notation and it gives organizations the ability to communicate these procedures with other team members in a standard manner. This ensures that businesses understand themselves and participants in their business and this enables organizations to adjust to new internal and business circumstances quickly.
