How do you establish efficient processes? How do you know what resources are required to execute a process or where bottlenecks will arise during process execution? How do you identify which process variants are better than others before they are actually implemented? How many resources do you need for new processes? These questions can be answered by analyzing the dynamic behavior of processes. This is where ARIS' process simulation capabilities come into play. By enabling evaluation of both executability and efficiency, the software supports decision-making in reengineering, benchmarking, and resource planning. ARIS allows both existing and new processes to be analyzed and improved. The application collects a variety of information during a simulation run that enables the behavior of processes to be assessed. The results are presented in the form of color animation, statistics and charts. Data provided includes throughput and wait times, total processing time, costs, weaknesses, as well as resource requirements and utilization. Simulation of business processes provides information about the executability of processes, process weaknesses, and resource bottlenecks. In the run-up to cost intensive process changes, the simulated process performance indicators can be used to evaluate various alternatives and carry out true-to-life benchmarking. The course covers possible application scenarios and the procedure for simulating your business processes.
