Five Steps Lifecycle of BPM

Step 1: Design

The majority of the procedures included in the design are for data collection and processing. Create a form and identity that can simply carry out all of the activities in a process.  In process design, you define the processes you want to automate and document the procedures, activities, people, and choices required to achieve the intended outcome.

Step 2: Model 

Use the graphic layout to represent your procedure. Check all the deadlines and conditions used to represent the sequence of events and data flow from your processes. Business process modeling is used to carry out the current process and design the future based on it.

Step 3: Execute

Execute the process by testing it on a small group of people first and then apply it to the larger community. Check on the restricted access to sensitive information and details.

Step 4: Monitor

This is a crucial step to keep an eye on all the running processes in an organization. To use the right metrics to identify the processes and their efficiencies and locate obstructions is an important part of business process management.

Step 5: Optimize

After monitoring, you can also make some modifications required to change the workflow to make them more flexible and efficient.
