Information Technology Training: Process Modeling Workshop (5 Days)
Purpose - The Process Modeling Workshop trains participants in Information Engineering process modeling techniques while they are developing the initial process model for an operational area.
Preparation - In order to develop an effective process model for systems implementation a stable operational data model must be completed including full documentation of all appropriate business rules. Appropriate personnel must be assigned to the project.
Activities - Participants in the Process Modeling Workshop will receive training in and begin to identify and isolate specific business events that need to be modeled. In addition, client personnel will receive training in process modeling techniques to effectively tie the process model to the operational data model. Training will cover process view diagrams, control flow diagrams and structured action diagrams.
Products - The Process Modeling Workshop will transfer the initial skills necessary to allow client personnel to begin creation of the process model. In addition, the process modeling participants will build a project plan for completion of this phase of the project.
Participants - Participants in the process modeling workshop should include users of the system at any level of the corporation, systems analysts and data base administrators. Prerequisite: All participants in the Process Modeling Workshop should have previously participated in the Operational Modeling Workshop or Basic Data Modeling Workshop.
Scope - The scope of process modeling will be identical to the scope of the operational level data model.
Note: Course material may be subject to modification, based on the needs, capabilities, and interests of the students.
