Key benefits with process discovery.

> The ‘as-is’ process is created quickly and objectively.
> Bottlenecks and waste are discovered.
> Process changes are simple to follow-up repeatedly.
> Auditing and regulatory compliance is analyzed and ensured.
> Reduce maintenance costs by streamline the process.
> Best practices can be decided and promoted.
> Processes are measured with KPIs.
> Replacement of legacy systems are enabled.
> Can be used for training and knowledge transfers.

How does it work ...?

Step #1

Easy data upload.

Every business process leaves data traces in the IT system which can be used to visualize, animate and analyse your true as-is processes. Exporting this historic data from your IT system in a standard format such as Excel or text is all that is required to get start the auto discovery.

If you have any questions or need any support we are happy to help you. Just let us know, we are here to help.


Step #2

Optimize your data with only a few clicks.

Optimal data gives the best results and most relevant flowcharts and KPIs. Use our easy-to-use feature to quickly optimize your data. For example, removing on-going Cases and system generated States, will significantly improve the value of your data. Case data can also be anonymized to increase security.

Speed up you Lean and Six Sigma work.

Get the perfect tool to follow-up on Your true as-is processes, enabling you to objectively visualize and measure Your continues improvements.

Step #3,

Visualize, animate and enrich your actual workflow.

Select a data model and get instant BPMN flowcharts based on your actual process history. You will be amazed by what you can discover and how much time and effort can be saved with this automated tool.

Just press the PLAY button to replay your entire process execution and identify potential bottlenecks. Use your domain knowledge to enrich the flowchart, by adding comments, groups etc. You can even share the results with other stakeholders by generating reports.


Step #4

Compare and identify improvements.

You can compare processes side-by-side to quickly identify deviations and potential improvement areas. For example, you can compare three different teams over the same period of time, or the same team for three different periods, or use a reference/target process for comparison etc.

Rapidly determine and communicate/share the actual and objective "health" of your true business process.

Feel confident about Your process execution.

By using Your own process history data, You can feel comfortable about how your business is performing on a daily basis.

    Automated business process discovery (ABPD) as a complementary approach overcomes many of these shortcomings to create a business process model at a fraction of the time and cost involved in the traditional way. One major benefit of ABPD is process discovery across the “white space,” the process knowledge gap that exists between departments and functions and at the edges of processes.

  • Automated process discovery – By automating the analysis of the data, the subjectivity of current manual process analysis techniques is removed. The automated system has an ingrained methodology that — through repeated trials — has been shown to accurately discover processes and process variations without bias.

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
  • Process Mining Manifesto

    Process discovery is the most prominent process mining technique. For many organizations it is surprising to see that existing techniques are indeed able to discover real processes merely based on example executions in event logs.

    It (ABPD) delivers the ability to take system data and automatically piece together “as-is” business processes. ABPD visually demonstrates process exceptions, unusual transactions, bottlenecks, deviations, weaknesses and potential risks in processes. Being able to actually see how things are running in the organization, ABPD empowers analysts and process owners to effectively optimize business processes.

Step #5

Objective and repeatable process KPIs

Objective KPIs based directly on your current process data will enable you to monitor and optimize improvements. Repeatable measurement based on reliable and easily available data is key to being successful and consolidating continual improvements.

Additional KPIs can be provided, feel free to propose new ones to us and we will respond as soon as we can. Let’s work together with continual improvement!


Step #6

Quick process root cause analysis

Straight forward detailed analysis of flowcharts is a feature of the system. The root cause of a deviation can be identified by listing and exporting the actual Cases behind a flowchart. This visibility enables team cooperation and reduces the improvement cycle time. Very easy to use.

Beat the competition.

Continuously repeat Step#1 to #6 to make sure You beat the competition and get the needed finical margin. Start working actively with Your business process performance today.

Repeat as necessary

When the above steps have been completed and the identified improvements implemented, the auto process discovery procedure can be repeated from Step #1 in keeping with the process of continuing and ongoing improvement.

Autoprocessdiscovery.com has a similar philosophy to Lean, Six Sigma, Kaizen and other quality focused frameworks. Our discovery and improvement cycle can increase efficiency bringing real added value to your business.
