Architecture modelling and improvement programmes consist of three phases ...


Phase-1
Define goals. Develop As-is and first-cut To-be models of

selected processes. Create schedule for Phase-2.


Phase-2
Refine goals. Develop To-be models. Create

schedule for Phase-3.


Phase-3
Implement and execute To-be models.

Instill a philosophy of constant assessment

and improvement (Kaizen).




At the completion of Phase-1 and Phase-2, Proforma UK will supply a bound A4 report consisting of OpenText ProVision models, interpreted textual information, association matrices and, where applicable, simulation results. A CD containing the same information in MS-Word and HTML files will also be included. These reports will be of great use in their own right, regardless of whether or not it is decided to proceed to the next phase.

Phase-3 is normally conducted under the direct auspices of the customer, with Proforma UK acting in an advisory capacity working with specialist 'soft-skill' partners to embed a philosophy of constant improvement (Kaizen) in corporate culture. This is backed-up by Proforma UK providing the ongoing monitoring, simulation and process honing expertise.

See the Approach page for details of our modus operandi.


Example Deliverables

  • Business models
    e.g. Organisation, Business Interaction, Location, Goal, Risk/Control
  • Process models
    e.g. Process Decomposition, Workflow, Use Case
  • Data/Information models
    e.g. Business Class (Entity Relationship), State Change, Method, Operation
  • Technology and System models
    e.g. System, Platform, Technology, Deployment, System Interaction, Storyboard, Equipment
  • Association matrices
    e.g. Activity vs. Actor, Process vs. System, Risk vs. Control, Activity vs. Goal
  • Output files
    e.g. BPEL, UML/XMI, XML, WSDL, XPDL, DDL, C++, XLS, DOC, HTML
  • Simulation grids and charts (Monte Carlo and Discrete Event)
    e.g. Activity State, Commodity State, Cost Distribution, Cost, Entity State, Resource State, Resource Utilisation, Staffing and Timing

OpenText ProVision - Training Support

Proforma UK believe that the customer should own the process (and its models) rather than an external organisation. To this end, in addition to our consultancy projects, we conduct OpenText ProVision public and on-site training courses, enabling process owners to maintain their own models, in line with the kaizen constant improvement philosophy.
