Process Modeling Exercise.
In this tech project you are to identify a business process, explain it and then document it in by using Microsoft Visio to draw a Swimlane diagram, as discussed in the textbook.
Instructions for the assignment are in the document titled Tech Project 1 – Visio Process Mapping.pdf. There is a grading rubric included in that document to help you identify how your submitted work will be scored.
Posted with this link is an introductory lecture to help you get started (ProcessMap.wrf). To view that lecture, you must have the CISCO WebEx player installed on your computer.
Also attached to this assignment post is a basic Visio 2010 tutorial. Also, here is a great youtube video on 2010:
Here is another youtube video about swimlane diagrams:
And finally, here is a good resource that talks about swimlane process models – and even some free software that creates swimlane diagrams. You may use this software, if you like, though you will need to export the diagram as an image to import into your Word document (as the assignment specifications describe): http://www.edrawsoft.com/swimlane-example.php
Microsoft Visio does not run on a Mac – but is available to you via UT’s VLAB. Instructions on how to use the VLAB are on the Blackboard Course Resources link. Microsoft Visio is available as a free download from Microsoft (via DreamSpark). Details for obtaining the software can be found under the course resources link.
