This use case provides a general outline of how to use ARIS Process Governance. ARIS Process Governance enables you to design, run, and monitor BPM processes in an ARIS database. ARIS Process Governance enables you to automate BPM processes and optimize the efficiency of your company.

The reference database "Governance Automation Models" on your installation media provides sample processes for different topics, which you can use for introducing yourself to ARIS Process Governance.

Business process management models form the basis for the execution. Value-added chain diagrams, to which EPCs are assigned, describe the process overview. The assigned EPCs describe the chronological and logical sequence with the help of human and automated tasks, dialogues, roles, services etc.

Decisions in the process are made automatically or manually. Automated process steps are linked to the corresponding service. These can be ARIS services or external services that are imported via WSDL interface. Process steps containing human tasks are linked to automation-relevant organizational elements and dialogs.

Automation-relevant organizational elements, such as, for example, organizational unit, position, and person type are modeled in organizational charts that are connected to objects of the "Person" type or that reference LDAP.
Dialogs are created in the "Dialogs" module. They are displayed to the relevant executor during the execution of a human task in the Task list module or in the Process Board. You can find detailed information about the creation of dialogs in the video tutorial "Creating dialogs".
If a notification was set up for a task, a relevant employee will receive a notification per e-mail when a human task is to be processed. The task is displayed to the responsible executor in the "Task list" module or on the Process Board.

The 'Task list' module can be found in ARIS Process Automation Architect. Process Board is a Web application that can be reached using the link in the notification. Detailed information about managing tasks can be found in the video tutorials "Managing tasks in the Task list module" and "Managing tasks with Process Board". The subsequent sequence of the process is controlled depending upon which decisions are made during the automated and human tasks. Data flow diagrams are created for dialogs, human tasks, and services.

The input data for a specific object is modeled in a data flow diagram, in order to define which functions, constants, and events the selected function or event receives data from. Processes cannot be automated unless data flows are modeled correctly. You can find detailed information about this in the video tutorial "Modeling a data flow".

Correct modeling is required for the transformation of the business process to a BPMN process. The semantic check can be already used during modeling to check whether the transformation will run smoothly.

The semantic check verifies whether the modeling conventions have been observed and all required information and items are available. You can find the "Modeling Conventions for Automation" manual in the start menu in the document directory of the ARIS program group.

You can create the executable process if the business models are modeled correctly. All relevant information from the business process is interpreted and transformed into a technical process. In doing so, BPMN models are created. The BPMN process is the source code for the governance process.

If the executable process was created successfully, you can start the governance process.
In doing so, a process instance for the business process is created and run. Detailed information about monitoring processes and solving problems with the process administration can be found in the video "Process administration in ARIS Process Governance".

Process monitoring is performed by ARIS PPM for ARIS Process Governance. It monitors all running procedures and informs you about critical weak points in your processes. Extraordinary procedures and process instances that deviate from predefined KPI values, such as configured planned values, can be identified. The basic configuration of ARIS PPM for ARIS Process Governance contains predefined dashboard and analysis favorites for reference processes.

You just received an overview about using ARIS Process Governance. For detailed information, please see the videos and manuals mentioned in the following.
