This mapping activity allows you to understand:
If the process is efficient: after the mapping is done, analyses can be made, for example, of the costs and the possible inefficiency potentials.
The value stream created in the process.
Whether the existing procedures cover the entire perimeter of the business process and are consistent with it.
The workflow of the process and the operating mode of the company as a whole, as well as any redundant processes in different corporate departments.
Using SysBPM, you can map your business processes through three different methods:
The SIPOC: this method provides a synthetic overview on the operating mode, the inputs and the outputs, and identifies the other fundamental elements of the process, such as suppliers and customers.
The Business Process Diagram (BPD): it is a flow chart that shows in detail all the activities carried out within a process.
The Value Stream Map (VSM): In the industrial world, this method follows the creation of the products in order to identify the value stream created.
