Business Process Management (BPM) is the art and science of overseeing how work is performed in an organization to ensure consistent outcomes and to take advantage of improvement opportunities. In this context, the term “improvement” may take different meanings depending on the objectives of the organisation. Typical examples of improvement objectives include reducing costs, reducing execution times and reducing error rates. Improvement initiatives may be one-off, but also display a more continuous nature. BPM is about managing entire chains of events, activities and decisions that ultimately add value to the organisation and its customers. These “chains of events, activities and decisions” are called processes.
In this assignment, you will be required to form teams of approximately four (4) people. One team member is to be elected the team leader for the duration of the assignment. Teams will prepare a business report based on a process case study and should use their own initiative regarding any assumptions and cycle times if needed.
An electronic copy of a case study will be available from your tutor or course lecturer.
The report should contain details of the following tasks:
a).Provide a description and application of a process categorisation model (e.g. Porter or
b).Provide a description and application of the Capability Maturity Model (CMM).
c).Apply Dijkman et al’s (2011) technique discussed in lectures to prepare a case
and identify all associated processes.
d). Using appropriate software, model any two (2) of the processes identified in part (c).
e). Provide an explanation of how each of the models created in part (d), adhere to
Mendling etal’s (2010) 7PMG guidelines discussed in lectures.
f). Consider each model produced in part (d), calculate the process cycle time for each
of the two (2) processes modelled. Any assumptions made should be documented in
g). Use redesign techniques by Reijers and Mansar (2005) discussed in lectures, to
identify anytwo (2) design flaws in the as-is models created in part (d). Use heuristics
and anyappropriateproduct-based design approaches and display the impact of any
heuristic measures on the Devil’s Quadrangle. Any assumptions made should be
documented in the report.
h). Draw the architecture of your BPMS. Identify and describe all it components.
A suggested template for the above report is provided. You can use it as a guideline for
presenting your business report. For assistance in report writing techniques, see:
Tasks should be distributed evenly amongst team members. The processes in parts (d),
(e), (f) and (g) should be completed by two (2) different students. Each student is
required to undertake a minimum of three (3) tasks.
Each team member’s sections should be clearly labelled with their name. If this is not
done,marks will be averaged across the team members.
A quality team report will demonstrate a synthesis of content, knowledge, skills and
ideas acquired from lectures, tutorials and academic authors with details from the case
Team reports should be presented as a business or management style report, in
Team reports should be submitted in electronic format by the team project leader via
moodle (one per team).
Innovation marks may be awarded for evidence of additional
tasks by any individual student, for example identification of a third process, etc.
Feedback and marks will be provided in Moodle. Marks will also be available in FDL
