Automation of business processes management

For simplification of problems there are used cross-platform automation software www.bpmonline.com/l/bpm/software/ibpms and many companies developers and system integrators participate in development of independent standards for the description and performance of business processes. One of such standards is the standard of modeling of business processes BPMN — the language of modeling of business processes. However, the real break in the field of standardization of automation of processes is the creation of the BPMN language and the concept of web services with which it is closely connected. BPMN represents the standard of the description of business processes and mechanisms of their interaction that creates a basis for the creation of flexible business processes in information systems which are capable to adapt to the changing external conditions quickly.

For verification of completeness of the description of activity at various levels of specification and various stages of business process management the set of models of architecture, such as Zachman’s architecture, architecture of TEAF (The Treasury Enterprise Architecture Framework), architecture of FEAF (Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework), architecture of DoDAF (Department of Defense Architecture Framework) are used. Use of various ways of structuring entities of business and interrelations between them allows with a necessary completeness to describe not only processes of activity, but also other subject domains, such as information, necessary resources, infrastructure, personnel, etc. All this allows to look at the system description of activity from the new points of view and to effectively solve problems of improvement of processes with use of information technologies.

Processes have stopped being the new ideology of management for a long time, and most the companies already use process approach and if to speak about the applicability of process approach, then many companies already not only solve problems of formalization and automation of processes but also have actively started improvement of processes. And the use of various tools of the analysis, such as imitating modeling or calculation of the cost of processes allows making reasonable decisions on improvement, choosing from several options the most optimum by criteria of cost, performance time, and quality. However, not all risk to use such radical methods of improvement of processes as horizontal and vertical compression of processes. What doesn’t give the chance to get all possible advantages of process management and therefore in this direction still there is a big reserve for activity optimization.
