"Industry 4.0 is ushering in sweeping changes to manufacturing, making it transparent, highly dynamic, and flexible . The factory of the future operates autonomously: it can organize itself and its processes and solve any malfunctions or problems without the need for human intervention."
From the BPM Forum
"Without great processes, small businesses will always stay small businesses."
"Contrary to some's opinions the client themselves, even the people who directly participate in a process, don't always know the process as well as they think they do, much less a given process from end-to-end…(Process Modeling) is one way to know what's going on, why things work they way they do and what opportunities may exist for doing them better."
"It's amazing how well a simple process model can help with communication. You may not be talking specifically about the process, but it acts as a point of reference around which other conversations can take place"
"A well-designed and well-explained model that is actually executable in a process engine goes a long way into having the customer not only discover their own requirements (huge problem in software projects), but clarify how the system will actually help them in the to-be scenario. This is huge and removes a lot of friction during the development, testing and acceptance phases of the implementation effort."
"Most SMEs want to grow, but the main problem is the growing pains involved. More BPM = more efficiencies, better co-ordination, easier scaling."
"Thanks to bpmPaaS and BPM-driven SaaS solutions, small businesses have a great opportunity, previously denied them, to take advantage of sophisticated BPM capabilities without the capital investment and time needed to set up an in-house solution."
