      Eunomia Process builder
      support several process
           modeling notations

 

 

      

     
The UML/BPMN schema
            is extended with
           process elements
           to better describe
                 the process

 

 

      
     
A process element may
        be shared by several  
          graphical objects in
              different views

2. Structure them

3. And define their characteristics (attributes and associations):
- For instance, for an activity, you enter a description and a tailoring guideline, you define the roles involved in the activity, the in and out work products, the steps, and the applicable guides and measures.

- Most data may also be modified in Excel for mass editing and then imported into the tool.

- The element version, element approval, and design notes can be managed by the tool.

- Process builder also provides  a process integrity report
.

Define the process elements’ characteristics

Eunomia Process Builder contains a powerful schema editor:

1. Allowing to design complex process

1.2 Using UML notation (including extended UML 2.x objects like interruptible region and expansion region)

ProcessSchema_UML

1.2 Using BPMN notation

BPMN_standard

1.3 Using artistic notation

2. to design process landscapes
3. to design role maps / organization charts
4. to design work product maps

Eunomia Process Builder can generate a process website in two languages.

The web pages and the hierarchical menu are automatically generated:
- Process pages containing the process schema with the associated hyperlinks
- Activity pages containing activity description and tailoring guidelines, in and out work products, roles, hierarchical steps, applicable templates and procedure, quality criteria …
- Work product pages containing work product description, author, activities using/defining it, quality criteria, templates and examples.
- Role pages containing role responsibilities, work product the role is responsible for and all activities in which the role is involved, classified by phase and by level of responsibility
- Page containing a list of all work products classified by domain and by discipline and that can include a work product map
- Page containing a list of all templates and work product examples classified by domain and by discipline
- And much more …

The templates, examples and guides can be embedded in the web site or contained in a separate document repository. The process web site can be installed on a web server, on a file system, or even published on a CD-Rom. The generated web site is compliant with W3C standards and thus is interoperable, making it easy for users to view it on different browsers.

Tooltips in the generated web site provide easy access to  information:
- tooltips are generated on each activity, work product and role hyperlinks to give a quick overview of the content of the object without needing to open the associated page.
- tooltips are automatically generated on words in a text corresponding to a glossary entry, allowing users to quickly understand the associated semantics.

Example of a more complex process

Complex process (Software Development Life Cycle)

In this example of classic Software Development Life Cycle, the main produced work products have been added on the schema. If you drag the mouse over an activity or a work product, a tooltip describing it appears.
