Linking a process in the value chain

Overview

When presenting the value chain in your organization, you may choose to link process definitions to the primary or support processes included in your value chain.

This way, someone viewing the value chain can drill down for further details.

You can also link to another value chain model if you want.

For introductory information about the value chain feature in Bizagi Modeler, refer to Value chain model.

 

Linking a process from your current model

To link to a process definition in the value chain, make sure you have checked out the model. Hover the mouse pointer over the process you want to link from and click the ValueChain_icon6 icon:

A navigation window appears for you to select the process you wish to reference.

 

The window displays the following controls:

You can also link to another value chain model, by searching for it by name.

 

Click the process you want from the search results so it has a tally mark (ValueChain_icon17); and click Save. Check in your changes by clicking Check in.
