CACI launches business process and workflow analysis design solution.
Designed for industrial and service enterprises, SIMPROCESS enables Business Process Reengineering (BPR) and Information Technology (IT) professionals to visualize and evaluate the results of process changes before they commit expensive company resources, time and money.
The direct benefit is the significant reduction of time and risk it takes users to service their customers, fulfill demand and develop new products.
"SIMPROCESS is an ideal tool for workflow analysis," said Joe Lenz, president of CACI Products. "Modeling the business process and analyzing alternative workflows can save organizations significant time and money prior to implementation.
"SIMPROCESS's object-oriented, hierarchical event-driven simulation approach combines icon-based process mapping, activity-based costing and data analysis capabilities in one tool. This provides our customers with the best of both worlds -- progressive technology and reliable, easy to use process reengineering solutions."
SIMPROCESS is built on the latest version of CACI's object-oriented simulation language, MODSIM III. Unlike hierarchical representations of processes that use attached diagrams or files, SIMPROCESS offers true hierarchy based on object-orientation.
Manifesting the concept that a business is a series of inter-related processes and resources that convert inputs to outputs, SIMPROCESS builds, organizes and analyzes cost information on an activity basis.
Unique features include reusable templates, advanced modeling constructs, and comprehensive analysis tools, Design of Experiment (DOE), and distribution fitting. These powerful advanced modeling functions overcome the limitations of competitors' simplistic tools.
"Reusable templates and object-oriented modeling allow customization of SIMPROCESS for a broad range of industries," stated Kerim Tumay, director of Process Simulation Applications.
"Typical SIMPROCESS applications for industrial enterprises include Product Development, Engineering Change, Supply Chain Management, Logistics, Maintenance and Customer Service. And SIMPROCESS applications for Service Enterprises commonly include Help Desk, Claims Processing, Loan Processing, Purchasing and Human Resource Management."
SIMPROCESS is available in Professional and Lite versions. SIMPROCESS LITE, designed for casual users, is ideal for proposals, pilot programs and visioning. The unabridged version, SIMPROCESS PROFESSIONAL, provides power users with an integral development tool. It is used in the design stage, in full-scale projects and for analysis. SIMPROCESS runs under Windows 95, Windows NT and UNIX operating systems.
