Process Mapping with e5 Studio
Business Analysts and Developers work together to create workflows
The graphical Workflow Designer uses elements from the current work item using simple drag and drop.
e5 Studio provides a graphical workflow designer to create workflows on the fly.
Business process mapping allows an organization to exactly define a process – who has responsibility, what steps will be performed, what standards of completion are required, and how success is defined.
The result of process mapping is a workflow illustration that visually represents all activities including the handling of exceptions.With e5, no up-front process analysis is required. Instead, the business analyst creates ‘as is’ process maps for every classification of work, including tasks, status, fields and other assets, via simple drag and drop. Depending on the complexity of the current process, this activity can take a matter of hours to days to complete. e5 is then implemented using the ‘as is’ process to establish a baseline of metrics. Once in production, process analysis is performed on-going. Based on the metrics provided by e5, the business analyst re-engineers the process by making changes to the workflow on-the-fly in e5 and again measuring the results. This is an iterative process, ultimately identifying, delivering, and executing on the optimum business process.

A custom asset, such as a link to a 3rd party insurance system, requires special code. Once developed, the business analyst selects the task and drags and drops into the workflow.
With e5, the business analyst can also select standard elements from Windows Workflow.
