Tipp City, OH (PRWEB) January 28, 2014
The Ben Graham Corporation, a pioneer in process improvement method, announces the release of Graham Process Mapping Software 8. Since 1990, Graham Process Mapping Software has owned a unique niche in the process improvement arena.
Graham Process Maps present a clear detailed layout of where you are today. Use this understanding of process details to make changes necessary to get where you want to be.
Unlike other methods that provide process clues, identifying high level process functions, Graham Process maps are reality maps that show the flow of every document in a process. If the document is electronic or paper or any other medium that captures or stores process information it is displayed on a Graham Process Map. Even information that isn’t captured and only resides in the head of the person doing the work is shown on a Graham Process Map. Graham Process Maps show who uses each document every step along the way, where the document travels and how it impacts other documents in the process. They show what document is being used by whom, where it is used and how it relates to the other documents in the process. They also show every point along the way that each document sits idly, where information provided by a document causes alternate processing and at what points in the process each document is checked for correctness. They distinguish value-added -- where information changes (or a part is physically altered) from non-value-added -- where documents (or parts) are handled, but not changed.
Graham Process Maps provide a level of visible detailed process information that is unmatched. They have been used for over sixty years as the foundation of successful process improvement projects. They are used for development, for training, for procedure writing (Procedure writing is a natural follow-up to an improvement project and the Playscript Procedure Writing feature in Graham Process Mapping Professional makes that job easier.) They are used to support Six Sigma, Lean and other improvement methods. They are used to support Sarbanes-Oxley requirements, ISO requirements and audit requirements.
Patrick Morgan, Process Improvement Manager at PowerStream, Inc., comments, “For process mapping (from simple to complex), Graham Process Mapping Software is one of the best - cost-effective software developed by process mapping experts. Have used for 10+ years, looking forward to using Version 8 in 2014.”
The software can be downloaded for review or purchased at processchart.com. The software comes with e-booklets to guide you through your first project: "Business Process Improvement Methodology - An Introduction to Work Simplification" and "Business Process Improvement Project Guide." A "Getting Started" e-manual gets you up and running with the software quickly. Several sample charts taken from actual processes demonstrate features of the software.
The Starter Edition Software is priced at $99.00 US and the Professional Edition is just $485.00 US. For more information and to purchase the software, visit: http://www.processchart.com.
