BP Logix introduces Process Director

BP Logix has released Process Director, which is designed to integrate project planning and BPM. The company says Process Director enables business users to define and model sophisticated business processes through a project management-like interface. Further, Process Director was developed to specifically address activity-based processes, those processes that traditionally have been forced to fit into flowcharts. Process Director models these non-linear activities as a Gantt chart, recognizing their conditions, constraints and timelines, then makes use of predictive analysis to determine if a future activity is likely to be completed on time or be delayed. BP Logix reports that Process Director:

  • addresses “activity-based” processes (vs. traditional flow or approval-based BPM);
  • exists as a layer on top of BPM and workflow automation functions;
  • is specifically designed to automate, track and report on complex, non-linear processes;
  • provides predictive analysis of processes to alert to future problems;
  • delivers timeline-based automation; and
  • offers a distinctive approach to process management that incorporates project management methodologies.

Features include:

  • a 100 percent Web-based interface that enables users to create and model processes through a project management interface;
  • easy-to-define activities with assigned users, dependencies, conditions and timelines;
  • Gantt charts to represent and administer running processes;
  • ability for users to make changes to project plans and have those changes immediately take effect on running processes;
  • a rules-based evaluation of project activities;
  • Key Performance Indicators (KPI) definition that provides the thresholds and triggers associated with activities for reporting;
  • “due date” management and escalation;
  • electronic signatures and audit trails;
  • customization by business users without programming;
  • 21 CFR Part 11, HIPAA and SOX-compliance; and
  • built-in integration with many third-party and in-house applications and databases.
