The use of many Ukrainian companies includes such terms as; structure modeling, business process modeling, business engineering and business process reengineering. Interest is growing in the general concept of business modeling.
The main purpose of business modeling is to analyze and improve the activities of an organization or an enterprise. It is not a secret that labor productivity in the Ukraine, defined as gross domestic product per capita, is several times lower than labor productivity in developed countries. In other words, work performed by several people in Ukrainian companies is done by one worker in a developed country.
This situation is determined by the low level of production, information and management technologies, used by Ukrainian companies. One of the reasons is the lack of organization of work.
According to the expert estimates, the introduction of modern technologies by Ukrainian companies in the organization and management of business, will be able to increase their productivity by one and a half times and higher.
To analyze and improve the company's activities, it is necessary to build and use its business model.
It is very difficult to manually design and to graphically present strict formal system specifications, check them for completeness and consistency, and even more to change it. If finallywe can create a rigorous system of project documents, then its processing with the appearance of serious changes is practically impossible. If the project participants try to make manual development, then they will have the following problems:
- inadequate specification of requirements;
- inability to detect errors in design decisions;
- poor quality of documentation that reduces performance;
- latency cycle and unsatisfactory testing results.
Modern modeling tools for organization processes - computer-aided software engineering systems (CASE-technologies). These systems allow you to build process models, to interconnect them, to split into component processes. In IMPULSE-IVC as a means, the software program AllFusion Process Modeler (formerly known as BPwin) of Computer Associates is used, which allows to build different models according to the standards IDEF0, IDEF3 and DFD.
Business Process Modeling (IDEF0) allows you to systematically analyze your business, focusing on standard, daily functions and management tools that support these features.
Workflow Modeling (IDEF3), also known as process modeling, is used to graphically describe and to document processes by collecting information about the sequence of their execution, the relationship between them and important objects that are part of these processes. Process diagrams are used as an auxiliary tool for modernizing business processes, developing an indicator that determines the completeness of products and services provided, as well as for gathering information about policies and procedures within the company itself.
The Data Flow Diagrams (DFD) focuses on the flow of data between different tasks. Provides maximum data availability in the organization with minimal response time.
