First, we will explain to you what BPR is. The best business process reengineering definition is this.  BPR “encompasses the envisioning of new work strategies, the actual process design activity, and the implementation of the change in all its complex technological, human and organizational dimensions.” – Thomas H Davenport (1993). Also, business process engineering is about creating a new value system and redesigning a workflow. Thus, the engineers have to come up with prototypes, simulations, and tests before they could implement the new value system. Organizations reengineer two key areas of their businesses. First, they use modern technology to enhance data dissemination and decision-making processes. Then, they alter functional organizations to form functional teams.

Global competition is one of the challenges that modern businesses have to deal with. Also, they have to find ways to reduce their overheads while creating new products and services. As business processes evolve daily, organizations must search for ways to solve their challenges. One of the best solutions to use is workflow technology. It consists of software and methods that could improve the way business processes are captured, re-engineered, optimized and automated. Workflow is a concept that describes how processes in manufacturing divide work activities into distinct roles, tasks, procedures, and rules.

Managing workflow can be difficult. Sometimes workflow coordination comes down to emails, notes pinned to a bulletin board, or the unreliability of memory. Some methods that small and midsize business owners and big company department heads use impede workflow efficiency, which has a negative impact on productivity. Teams can become confused and hesitate rather than charging ahead. (more…)

Workflows may be a simple sequence of work activities, or a complicated collection of processes that take place in parallel. When a company’s methodology features workflow management system capability, the result can be more visibility into all stages of the process, better accountability among work team members, and improved efficiency overall. With the right workflow management solution, repetitive tasks can be automated, and better collaboration is facilitated.

How many times during the day do we multitask? We are so used to multitasking that we most probably do not even count. The problem is that unstructured work on parallel tasks often brings significant productivity loss that effects on all our daily activities and results generally. Some of the negative consequences of multitasking are:

Hand coding usually takes long and invokes lengthy development cycles. Applications never reach their customers on time and most often require modification and change even before users start using them. Another issue is the loose understanding that business users have of the ultimate functionality that needs to be developed. As a result – business users never get what they want and the installed software dictates how work should be done. (more…)

A workflow diagram visually depicts steps and actions that define a process and how it should be accomplished. It shows how data and tasks flow through the steps, whether this is accomplished by humans or by machines, and it also shows under which conditions the process is allowed to continue forward. The flowchart is an example of a workflow diagram, but it’s not the only way workflows can be visualized.
