Process Modeling: Bring Your Process Maps to LifeOctober 10, 2022 •12:00 AM UTC
Peg Pennington, President - MoreSteam
If you've ever implemented a process improvement or designed a new process from scratch, you've probably created a new process map to show how the process should work. Static maps can be great tools to communicate a snapshot of the state of the world. However, nothing happens "on average." Process performance is more like a video stream that includes a good deal of variability.
Reveal Trouble Spots & Resolve
See how modeling can let you explore process variability and what happens when things change. Learn how you can virtually create an animated process model to observe how the process performs under stress. Understand how you can answer "what if" questions like: What happens if someone doesn't show up for work? Or errors create rework? Or a process step hits a snag and takes longer?
Modeling prepares you for all kinds of scenarios. Virtual prototypes encourage creativity and allow you to test your new design before it ever touches real customers.
Join us for this introduction to virtual process modeling to:
- Understand how process modeling draws upon principles of Lean and Agile methodologies
- Get introduced to virtual process prototyping with Process Playground software
- Minimize risk and improve the quality of solutions by experimenting with realistic scenarios
