Workflow processes within certain workflow products on the market are very transparent, this is due the tool separating the design of the process from the actual execution of the process. Next generation workflow platforms such as FlowWright gives you the both in one so you don't have to sacrifice functionality.
FlowWright combines the workflow process design with execution. We like to call it WYSIWYE - "What you see is what you execute". This concept achieves 2 things at once: it validates the design and also the execution in one step.
When the process is just a diagram, it's become difficult to validate that design. When the execution is separate from the design, it becomes even more difficult to relate the runtime information to the design of the process.
Transparent processes are no longer acceptable today given the number of issues it can cause y following this method. One of our engineer friends says he now works on an in-house developed workflow management tool for Manufacturing execution system; and one of the biggest challenges they face is after execution of a process it requires a lot of manual work to get to the runtime information of that particular process. Execution information is very important for analytics; if you cannot get to this information easily, it will become a problem, if not already. FlowWright provides graphical views of execution information with just a single click and also gives many ways to read and report that information depending on what teams need to see.
There's a reason FlowWright provides an enhanced execution view to users. The normal rendering view showing the execution information based on how your process design looks like instead of being based on the order of execution. In the case of a process where it has looping or multiple iterations, its difficult to visualize that information by looking at the original process design. FlowWright gives the execution view that shows progress based on order of execution. More views are also provided in reporting- such as execution only for every large workflow, critical view path and high level task view.
Transparency was good decades back, but today companies need tools that tie the execution information to the design process. Want help with this? Let's Talk!
