Business Process Analysis
Business Process Analysis is the study of a variety of multiple business operations classified into a series of related tasks. Analysis includes looking at the specific ways in which these tasks happen along a life cycle from beginning to end. Because a business process consists of a series of related efforts with a distinct end purpose, business process analysis uses numerous tools to check for efficiency, productivity and more. Epiphany's Business Process Analysis includes Business Scenario & Requirements, Process Flows and Functional Designs and Test Scenarios.
Business Scenario & Requirements
This is a simple definition of a business process.
Process flow/mapping refers to activities involved in defining what a business does, who is responsible, to what standard it should be completed, and how success can be determined.
The main purpose behind business process mapping is to assist organizations in becoming more effective. A clear and detailed process flow/map or diagram allows outside firms to come in and look at whether or not improvements can be made to the current process.
Functional design takes the process flow into the next level of detail. It will define the “what” that needs to happen. It also defines the process and the data in the simplest steps to complete the business process.
The test scenario is the “how” to accomplish the functional design. It is a detailed step- by- step process of how to accomplish the business process within the software system of choice. A critical component of the test scenario is testing with actual business data. The business data is seen in the third column of this document.
