Process management or business process management includes the conception, documentation, implementation, control and optimization of business processes (e.g. product development, order processing) in the company. Process management or business process management are synonyms for the term business process management. Business process management software coordinates dynamic business processes across functions.
In business process modeling, standardized modeling languages UML (Unified Modeling Language) are used to create activity diagrams. Business processes can be graphically represented in a diagram using process symbols (BPMN symbols), among other things. The listed software offers among other things possibilities for modeling process maps, versioning of processes, key figure management and generation of process descriptions as a part of the business process. Furthermore, this category also includes software for controlling the workflow of approvals, tasks and processes as well as extensive evaluation options within the scope of workflow management. Software solutions for HR processes as well as for audit management, failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) and risk management are also shown.
