Process models are simplified illustrations, representing a sequence of functions or activities.
These models clearly document the existing sequence flow of functions / activities.
For general clarity and consistency symbols are used as a standard description language.
SemTalk is used to create business process models. Semtation GmbH offers the software program SemTalk to model business processes and knowledge structures. SemTalk is an easy-to-use, but extremely powerful modeling tool based on Microsoft Visio. With little effort users create descriptive process models that are understood by all levels of process experts so that models can be created, expanded, reviewed, edited, approved, shared and continually updated and improved.
SemTalk users are able to use a wide range of different notations. These include:
- CSA (= Communication structure analysis) - a multiphase, scientifically-based analysis method where information production factors play a central role
- EPC (= Event-driven process chain) - a formal, structured summary of information-orientied processes that serve a common process goal.
- BPMN (= Business Process Modeling Notation) - a graphical modeling of business processes in a standardized and comprehensive notation from a business and technical perspective.
