Bpr assignment 2

  1. 1. Submitted to: Mr. Abdullah AlaminMarch 2, 2011Assignment # 2Write up onProcess Analysis Techniques & Tool for Business Improvement <br />Process Analysis Technique & Tool for Business Improvement <br />Introduction<br />Today's environment is characterized by increasing levels of competition. Enterprises wanting to increase their market share or obtain profits must adapt to changes in the environment. Consequently, many changes in business methods are beginning to appear. One of them is business process reengineering (BPR), defined as the fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of business processes to achieve dramatic improvements in critical, contemporary measures of performance.<br />Process analysis tools<br />This section gives a succinct of some of the recurrently used utensils these tools are categorized below two headings paper based software-supported tools and software enabled tools.<br />Paper based software supported tools<br />These tools are paper based some are computer supported to the scope on condition that representation support and uniformity inspection. There are many tools accessible in this category this paper focuses on the ones currently in positive discrimination.<br />The idea of this method was defined by the US air force to assist in its progression of supplier growth and evaluation. A comprehensive description of this tool is given in the IDEF (sub) 0 manual is one of the most extensively known tools for functional modeling. IDEF sub 03 was fashioned specifically to a model succession of activities performed. It provides a method for recording and analysis data and support system design and design trade off analysis. IDEF 1 is similar to entity relationship modeling but merges this with relational modeling is an extension IDEF 1 it has better graphical representation with augment semantics affluence and simplified development procedure…the IDEF2 does not provides any specific graphical tools. Petri nets are a graphical and mathematical tool that can be used to represent procedures, process, machine and organization. RAD shows the dynamics of process. An obvious attribute of the paper based tools is that they are restricted by the medium of representation; there is whole collection of tools appearing in the marketplace which use computer facilities to aid process mapping and analysis.<br />Product introduction process<br />The product introduction process of companies form the automotive industry was studied for determining the characteristics of the process<br /><ul><li>Concurrencncy/overlap
  2. 2. Interdependency
  3. 3. Complexity
  4. 4. Innovativeness</li></ul>Comparison methodology<br />Based on the capabilities of currently available tools and identified process characteristics six categories were seen as crucial in a process analysis tools.<br />These are<br /><ul><li>Hardware and software
  5. 5. User features
  6. 6. Modeling capabilities
  7. 7. Simulation
  8. 8. Analysis capabilities
  9. 9. Integration capabilities
  10. 10. HARDWARE</li></ul>Platforms and operating system: the wider the number of platforms and operating systems the software can work on, the enhanced it is.<br /><ul><li>USER FEATURES</li></ul>This is to point toward the diverse features that each tool has. This will also help distinctiveness the ones that is good for a PIP process.<br /><ul><li>MODELLING CAPABILLITIES
  11. 11. Goal centered
  12. 12. Roles
  13. 13. Data flow
  14. 14. Front end analysis
  15. 15. Ease of modeling
  16. 16. Level of detail
  17. 17. Concurrency and interdepency
  18. 18. Object orientation
  19. 19. Customization of blocks
  20. 20. SIMULATIOM CAPABILITIES</li></ul>This is to resolute if the software has any simulation potential. The factors are<br /><ul><li>Time
  21. 21. Cost
  22. 22. Distribution
  23. 23. Animation/graphical capability
  24. 24. Discrete event modeling
  25. 25. ANALYSIS CAPABILITY</li></ul>The analytical capability in a tool is vital for pronouncement means for improvement. Some factors are:<br /><ul><li>Reasoning
  26. 26. Output analysis
  27. 27. BPR expertise
  28. 28. What if? Analysis
  29. 29. Top down
  30. 30. INTEGRATION OF VIEWS</li></ul>A significant phase of enterprise integration is the ability to look at the process from different views; the informational views; decisional views etc. It can help in designing a suitable information system tailored to the requirement.<br />CONCLUSION<br />Among the potential enablers of BPR is information technology (IT). IT makes it possible to obtain improvements in BPR, though not just by it. This paper demonstrates the importance of IT in one of the most prominent methodologies.<br />Enterprises can make their tasks easier, redesign their organization, change the way they work, and achieve spectacular improvement using IT.<br />
