Bizagi allows you and your organization to manage your processes' complete life cycle: Model, Build, and Run, using a graphic background, with the least amount of programming. With the complete Processes' life cycle you will accomplish productivity, efficiency, and a profitable growth which will be sustainable in the long run.
The first step to create Bizagi solutions is to design the work flow (or Process flow). The workflow, known as a chain of activities, is the fundamental structure of the project, to which variables and elements needed are included in accordance with organization’s requirements.
We recommend that you use the Bizagi Modeler to design and document your process maps. Bizagi Modeler is a freeware application, independent from Bizagi Studio, dedicated to give you the best experience when designing and documenting Workflows, in industry-standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN). BPMN is a worldwide accepted standard for Process modeling.
Once the design of the workflow is complete, select Run Workflow on the Home tab of the Modeler. This one-button feature will automatically export it to the construction environment, Bizagi Studio.
After designing the Process, the next step is to build the solution, that is to automate.
To automate is to convert all the process activities into a technological application. Bizagi Studio is the authoring environment used to automate the processes that were defined with the Bizagi Modeler. An easy-to-use wizard will guide you through each of the steps to create your complete Process model: defining the data model, the user interface, the business rules, the work allocation and the integration with other applications, among other things.
The model is stored in a database, and is interpreted and executed by Automation Server. The model is presented in a Work Portal (web application) accessed through a browser. Automation Server based on the process model previously built, watches for the correctness of the execution in the different tasks and activities that intervene in the business process; by controlling and verifying that the tasks are done in the correct moment, by the correct person or resource, and according to company's guidelines, objectives, and other fundamental rules.
The resulting Work Portal has a very important characteristic: when the process is modified (any element of the model) it will automatically be updated and the change will be immediately displayed.
Bizagi has a complete set of performance reports and indicators about the processes which will allow you to analyze your business operation in real time and analyze historical performance information. These indicators enable process owners and business managers to gain insight into business operation and identify: bottlenecks, resource performance, service levels and trends. This information is the basis for process improvement.
Throughout the observations and conclusions obtained from these BAM and Analytics reports in the Work Portal, the opportunity of improvements to the Processes are identified.
Based on your findings, processes and business rules may be adjusted in real time using the Work Portal. Improvements can also be done using Bizagi Studio to generate a new version of the Process. This new versions can be taken to production without requiring any programming, in a short period of time: simply by modifying the business model the application will adapt automatically making it easier to do continuous improvement and to increase productivity in your organization.
Bizagi supports multi-versioning of Processes.
Once the opportunity of improvement is identified, in Bizagi Studio we can create new versions for existing processes and include these changes that make part of the Process' evolution or any business requirement change.
