Q. This is the technique used to analyse any business process with an intention to
identify improvement opportunities
A. Business process modelling (BPM) in systems engineering is the activity of representing processes of an enterprise, so that the current process may be analysed or improved. BPM is typically performed by business analysts, who provide expertise in the modelling discipline; by subject matter experts, who have specialized knowledge of the processes being modelled; or more commonly by a team comprising both. Alternatively, the process model can be derived directly from events’ logs using process mining tools.

The business objective is often to increase process speed or reduce cycle time; to increase quality; or to reduce costs, such as labour, materials, scrap, or capital costs. In practice, a management decision to invest in business process modelling is often motivated by the need to document requirements for an information technology project. Change management programs are typically involved to put any improved business

processes into practice.
