Business process management is a vital component of all business operation procedures. It’s crucial to companies for automation, modulation, and optimization of workflows and business activities. According to Forbes magazine, companies lose around 20% to 30% of their revenue due to ineffective processes. A standardised modelling solution is hence needed to save businesses from crashing. This is where BPMN comes in.
Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a standardised flow chart representation method that visually depicts the sequence of a planned process. It is a powerful tool that aids business process management and makes interdisciplinary coordination easier. It communicates everything from messaging-flow between participants to varied tasks for the members involved. BPMN is the base for business process diagrams (BPD).
Features of BPMN
BPMN is like a lingua-franca for people working in the business process management sector. It is a neutral notation recognized and understood by most solution-providers.
It does not depend on any other modelling method. An employee does not need to have any technical knowledge to understand and implement BPMN.
3. Graphical Representation
It has textual as well as graphical elements that visually represent a process for easy comprehension. A low-code-based open-source BPMN workflow builder lets operatives augment these graphical elements’ attributes and properties and allow them to create a more personalised model.
Why BPMN is important for process modelling
Maintained by the Object Management Group since 2005, BPMN is a standard for process modelling that is observed by companies across the globe. Companies follow the set procedure because it benefits their business in various ways-
1. End to end process execution
In its initial phase, BPMN targets participants and executives who supervise a business process. This enables them to understand the essential steps of a particular task. At the implementation level, BPMN targets operations officers who execute the process. The model gives them precise details that ensure a successful implementation.
2. Helps increase productivity
It’s claimed that up to 40% of lost productivity is the result of constant task switching by employees. Following a BPMN model helps employees follow a linear pattern of task execution.
The end to end modelling, when combined with Crust’s automation features, minimizes the loss of time and energy due to task switching.
3. Improved business analysis
Open-source BPMN is a standard business model system that is accessible by customers, technicians, engineers, and business analysts. The homogenization of notations and symbols allows for faster data interpretation and analysis. It also makes it easier for analysts to explain their reports to clients and business owners.
4. Enhanced IT applications
BPMN allows clear and unambiguous modelling of all business processes. So, this enables precise, purpose-driven delivery of software solutions.
With Crust’s open-source low-code platform, employees and developers can create applications the company needs while a BPMN chart helps them understand what is required of the software.
